Netzer Introduces the VLX-60 Absolute Encoder for Harsh Environments

November 23, 2020

The VLX-60 is a new member of the VLX series of Electric Encoders, a product line based on Netzer Precision Motion Sensor proprietary technology. EE products are characterized by features that enable unparalleled performance including:

  •    –   Low profile (<10 mm)
  •    –   Hollow shaft (Stator / Rotor)
  •    –   No bearings or other contact elements
  •    –   High resolution and unparalleled precision
  •    –   Very low weight
  •    –   Holistic signal generation
  •    –   Digital interfaces for absolute position
  •    –   Extremely low profile & weight
  •    –   Auto calibration option
  •    –   Hollow floating shaft; no bearing or other contacts
  •    –   High tolerance to temperature extremes, shock, moisture, EMI, RFI and magnetic fields

The holistic structure of the Electric Encoder makes it unique: Its output reading is the averaged outcome of the entire area of the rotor. This feature allows the EE a tolerant mechanical mounting and to deliver outstanding precision.

Due to the absence of components such as ball bearings, flexible couplers, glass discs, light sources and detectors along with very low power consumption enables the EE to deliver virtually failure-free performance in nearly all types of conditions.

The internally shielded, DC- operated EE includes an electric field generator, a field receiver, sinusoidal-shaped dielectric rotor, and processing electronics.

The EE output is a digital serial synchronous with absolute position single turn.

This combination of high precision, low profile and, low weight has made Netzer Precision encoders highly reliable and particularly well suited to a wide variety of industrial automation applications.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
