Rheintacho Provides Sensor Options for Electric Drives
June 4, 2018
The FQ, FP, FM and FK mobile electric drives from Rheintacho are equipped with a proven differential-hall technology for safe and reliable detection of rotational speed even in critical electrical and magnetic environmental conditions. The 2-channel design allows not only detection of rotational speed but also the direction of rotation.
In the price-sensitive market of electric drives, users can choose these sensors to match their needs regarding: the required signals, the necessary protection class for their specific applications, an interface via cable, a connector integrated into the sensor body and a wide variety of cable lengths and connector types.
The sensors can be used in a wide range of temperatures (up to +140 °C) due to the housings made of high-quality plastic as well as other constructive measures. The housing material used has exceptional mechanical properties. For example, compression strength and material durability reach values that already allow for substitution of metal housings depending on the respective application. Among other features, the electrical structure provides a very wide range of possible supply voltages and a high level of EMC stability. The Hall elements which are used cover a wide frequency range. The geometric design as flange sensor automatically ensures the proper installation position required for good signal determination.
The FK series has proven over the last decade as a kind of world-standard for speed detection inside electric drives. The FM series features connectors integrated directly into the sensor housing to its sensor portfolio. The sensor is made of a proven high-tech-plastic. The FP series comes with completely new designed sensor electronics resulting in standstill detection and high-temperature resistance. The FQ series achieves the high protection class of IP69K.
