Programmable and Customizable
When designing and manufacturing motors for a variety of applications, programmability and easy product customization is key. Traditionally, optical encoders were the all-purpose solution when installing thousands of encoders in motors.
Unfortunately, optical encoders are susceptible to failures due to contamination and vibration because of their lower durability in difficult environmental situations and lack of easy customization across applications.
Rugged and Durable
Timken® magnetic encoders offer easy customization for a number of motor applications. Motor manufacturers have the ability to quickly program our encoders for the appropriate number of pulses per revolution needed for each application. Our encoders are rugged, durable and able to withstand debris contamination. They are also immune to stray magnetic fields, and can be used in the strongest permanent magnet motor designs.
Add in Timken strength, accuracy and reliability, and our encoders ensure that each motor you manufacture performs as planned.
