Press Release Summary:
Series M85 Thin-Line(TM) products incorporate Edge-Guard sensor technology, which protects sensor elements from accidental contact with rotor and contamination. Wide-Gap(TM) technology simplifies installation by providing 57% larger operating gap between magnetoresistive sensor and rotor and 50% increase in air gap tolerance compared to conventional sensors. Units have narrow, 1 1/8 in. profile and include double C-Face for mounting of accessories.

Industrial Rotary Sensors Announced
New Sensing Technology Provides Simple Installation, Longer Life Compared to Conventional Products
CLEVELAND, OH-June 30. 2003-Avtron Manufacturing has announced a new series of encoders/tachometers for general industrial use. The new M85 Thin-Line(TM) products incorporate the company's new Wide-Gap(TM) sensor technology, which greatly simplifies installation by eliminating time-consuming alignment procedures. Wide-Gap technology provides a 57% larger operating gap between the magnetoresistive sensor and rotor and 50% increase in air gap tolerance compared to conventional sensors. In addition to easier installation, the gap increases the product's life by reducing contamination problems, (dust, for example, is less likely to create problems). This benefit is particularly important for motors with limited out-of-specification tolerances.
Additionally, the M85 Thin-Line products incorporate new Edge-Guard sensor technology, which protects critical sensor elements from accidental contact with the rotor as well as from contamination. The product has no bearings, couplings, or other wear parts, making it one of the most reliable configurations available.
The M85 Thin-Line products have an exceptionally narrow profile (1-1/8", 30 mm), which allow them to be installed in places conventionial products cannot fit. All are equipped with a double C-Face for easy mounting of accessories without adapters.
The Avtron M85 and related products are compatible with nearly all-major industrial motor brands.
