Avtron Manufacturing Announces Magnetic Encoder

April 14, 2006—Avtron Manufacturing, a manufacturer of industrial motor speed control equipment announced the first shipments of its new HS35M magnetic encoder.

The HS35M encoder is designed for industrial applications, and its hollow shaft, insulated design can be fit directly on motor shafts as well as machine shafts.

The HS35M encoder incorporates magnetic sensing technology from Avtron’s Heavy and Severe Duty lines of encoders, but shrinks the size of the package to the industry-standard HS35 envelope, said Brian Winter, Encoder Product Manager at Avtron. "What kills many encoders is water or dust every time, materials enter the encoder. With photo-eye based designs, the dust and/or water droplets prevent the encoder from feeling’ the encoder’s disk, and the encoder malfunctions. HS35M magnetic technology fees through’ contamination, and the HS35M encoder keeps working long after competitive units fail."

Additional features of the magnetic HS35M include: The insulated housing protects against motor shaft currents that can destroy the bearings in conventional units. HS35M shaft sizing inserts allow customers and distributors to quickly resize the product to meet various needs. An optional industrial EPIC style connector eliminates the need for soldering to connect the HS35M encoder.
