MA4501 incremental encoder
Incremental encoder for speed feedback with integrated mechanical overspeed switch. With new features such as a breathable membrane filter and double shaft seal, this new series is designed for harsh environments. The MA4501 series is a range of encoders that support combinations with built-in speed monitoring switches. The overspeed detection is based on a mechanical centrifugal force principle. As soon as a set limit speed is exceeded, the switch indicates the triggering of the speed via dedicated electrical outputs when opening / closing. These outputs can close / interrupt a contact or a relay with 230V and 6A. The overspeed monitoring in connection with normal incremental outputs makes the MA4501 suitable for use in safety-relevant applications.
Properties of the MA4501 incremental encoder
The extremely robust design and the encapsulation of the encoder series make them suitable for use in marine or offshore environments. Due to the safety aspect, the crane is a standard application for the series. The MA4501 is supplied with an 11mm solid shaft with a keyway to prevent slippage. The mounting flange is compatible with earlier tachometer generator interfaces including a B10 mounting flange. The entire construction is made of high-quality stainless steel.
