XT45 severe duty hollow shaft magnetic incremental quadrature rotary encoders fit shafts up to 1 1/8" [30mm]. For even larger shaft applications up to 2 3/8" [60mm], M6 models are available.
The XT45 is built to withstand extreme conditions: Cold, heat, shock, vibration, oil, salt water, and electrical overloads. XT45 is ideal for non-hazardous oil drilling applications such as top drives.
We started with our Wide-GapTM magnetic sensor system, potted to protect against liquids and dirt. We added universal 5-24V operation and high power outputs protected against short circuits and wiring problems.
Then we built an ultra-rugged shaft assembly with huge bearings and 2000lb shaft clamping to hold tightly and keep turning smoothly, even under continuous shock and vibration.
This incredible mechanical and electronic engine is protected by a cast aluminum housing and non-contacting labyrinth seals that work in any orientation. Of course, the XT45 features diagnostics and a remote alarm contact so you are certain your XT45 is providing top-quality signals.
XT45 keeps your rigs drilling and your machines running!
