Zettlex IncOders are non-contact, absolute angle measuring devices. They use a unique inductive technique and may be considered as an inductive encoder.
IncOders are ideally suited to applications that need precise measurement in harsh environments – where electrical contacts, optical or capacitive encoders may prove unreliable or where traditional resolvers, synchros or Inductosyns are too bulky or expensive.
IncOders have 2 parts – a Stator and a Rotor. Each is shaped like a flat ring. The large bore makes it easy to accommodate through shafts, slip rings, optic fibres, pipes, cables etc.
The Stator is powered and the Rotor is passive. The Stator contains all electronics necessary to receive power and generate the output signals. The output signals from the Stator show the absolute position of the Rotor relative to the Stator right from power up.
There is no need for compliant couplings and the Rotor & Stator can simply be connected to the host product. Precise mechanical mounting is not required and there are no bearings. Operation is unaffected by condensation or dust. Robust, anodized aluminium alloy housings and monolithic constructions are used for both Rotor and Stator.
There are no contacting, delicate or wearing parts which means no need for periodic replacement, service or maintenance.
IncOders are used in a wide variety of applications including:-
IncOders have a solid track record in safety related applications including airborne equipment and weapons systems.
IncOders are made in the United Kingdom, contain no ITAR restricted components and do not require an arms export licence unless they are >1000mm diameter.
The standard IncOder range offers various options and accessories. The options are specified using the IncOder part number when you order (see page 18) of the IncOder Product Guide. Each IncOder contains one Stator and one Rotor. The various options in the standard range include: –
Accessories may be purchased separately from the main IncOder:-
