Encoders

Absolute Encoders

Image/absolute_encoder_block_bbd33c.jpg

Absolute encoders always know their position - there is no need to "home" them. A Single-turn encoder measures absolute position within one revolution; and a multi-turn encoder also provides the number of revolutions.

Fieldbus Encoders

Image/fieldbus_encoders_3eba31.jpg

Fieldbus compatible encoders (Profibus, EthernetIP, Profinet, SSI, DeviceNet, EtherCat, Parallel, and Interbus) from Sick and Dynapar simplify system integration.

Incremental Encoders

The linear encoders Sick and TR Electronic are robust and easily installed to provide high resolution, direct measurement of linear motion.

Mill Duty Encoders and Resolvers

Image/mill_duty_encoder_block_f3df6b.jpg

Northstar's magnetic encoders ( digital tachometers ) are specially designed for the rigors of steel mill equipment, with the largest non-contact air gap to protect it from variations in shaft concentricities.

Joral Non-Contact Encoders

The Joral Hockey Puck and Prox Encoder are designed with a magnetic assembly that allows up to 1/2" air gap between the sensor face and element. They are fully sealed, rated IP69K, and able to operate fully submerged.

Sick Programmable Encoders

Image/sick_programmable_encoders_55db16.jpg

Sick's programmable encoders are configured using a PC, Notebook, or programming tool. The resolution is selectable, meaning that one part number can serve many applications.

Wire Draw / String Pot Encoders

Image/sick_wire_draw_encoders_block_b08c43.jpg

For applications where installation of a linear or rotary encoder is not feasible, the wire draw encoder is a problem-solver. They are rugged and easily installed, and the wire eliminates issues caused by indirect measurement of the motion.

Inductive Sensors

Analog Inductive Sensors

Image/sick_ima_analog_prox_family_912e14.jpg

Analog Inductive Proximity Sensors give a linear output signal, proportional to the distance of the metal target to the sensor face. They are used for position monitoring, thickness measurement, and identifying different metals.

As a web unwinds into a process, inconsistencies in the winder and the product itself lead to variances in the tension of the web. To maintain a consistent tension, a dancer bar is used. Instead of using a mechanical coupling to monitor the bar's position, an analog inductive proximity sensor is used, sending an analog signal directly to the PLC.

Block Style Inductive Sensors

Image/sick_rectangular_inductive_proximity_ba21fa.jpg

Use our compact, block-style inductives in applications where there is little space for mounting. These are also available in standard DIN formats for simple replacement of mechanical limit switches.

Ring Style Inductive Sensors

Image/tr_electronic_ring_c51faf.jpg

Ring sensors are excellent for parts detection, stow control, and wire break. Their high sensitivity makes them ideal for detecting very small mass targets like springs and catheter inserts.

Sick IMB Rugged Duty Inductives

Image/sick_rugged_duty_imb_inductive_proximity_8918e0.jpg

Withstands coolant, cutting oils, outdoor use and other abusive environments. It is configurable, minimizing the need for multiple part numbers. Its visual adjustment indicator and self locking mounting nuts minimize install time. Check out the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YnsCrdUvNXA

Sick Speed Monitor

Image/sick_sam_imc30_speed_monitor_f09f6d.jpg

The SAM is a self-contained system for monitoring speed and acceleration applications. A broad monitoring range and flexible configuration via IO Link allow the SAM to replace expensive PLC counter cards.

Sick Standard Range Inductive Proximity Sensors

Image/sick_ime_standard_inductive_proximity_9113b7.jpg

Inductive proximity sensors are the most reliable, robust and economical tool for the detection of metal targets.

Sick Triple Sensing Range Inductive Prox

Image/sick_triplex_triple_range_inductive_prox_77d7da.jpg

A drawback of proximity sensors is their limited sensing range, leading to the sensor being damaged by its target. Sick Triplex can sense up to 40mm away, and are available in 8mm to 30mm diaemeters.

Label Sensors

Di-Soric Capacitive Label Sensor

Image/di_soric_capacitive_fork_label_sensor_f230c4.jpg
