Goleta, CA - BEI’s newest and largest-bore hollow shaft encoder is ideal for large motor feedback applications. The HS45 accepts motor shafts up to 1 5/8 inches in diameter (1 - 7/8 inches optional) and provides data for position and velocity control. This model incorporates the precise feedback capabilities of an optical encoder with an easily mounted configuration to larger motors. There is no need to step down or alter most large motor shafts. The HS45 encoder provides an option for dual electrically isolated outputs. Should one set of outputs sustain electrical damage, a quick change of the connection enables you to get back up and running quickly. Alternatively, the dual output can also be utilized to feed two different controllers from a single encoder. This ensures speed and/or position synchronization without the cost of an additional encoder.For more information on any of BEI’s industrial encoders, Contact BEI or visit their web site at Industrial Encoder Division is an operating division of BEI Technologies, Inc.
