Stainless Steel Rotary Encoders Designed for the Most Extreme Conditions
Terryville, CT - AMCI's DuraCoder® brand encoders (http://amci.com/rotary-encoders.asp) are now available with stainless steel housings and an IP69K rating for operation in the most extreme conditions. AMCI DuraCoders have a superior shaft load rating; providing a longer life cycle than other encoders. Many industrial applications require encoders that withstand a variety of harsh environments. AMCI's stainless steel DuraCoders reliably perform in applications where standard encoders fail.
With a standard IP67 rating, and IP69K rated (http://amci.com/tutorials/tutorials-what-are-ip-ratings.asp) versions available, end-users can take advantage of the DuraCoder's protection against high pressure and high temperature wash downs; or liquid ingress from long-term immersion in water or contaminants. The DuraCoder product line comes standard with a 2.5" (63mm) housing and an oversized double row sealed bearing. Solid shaft and hub shaft versions are available with a variety of sizing options. Shaft loadings of up to 100 lbs. radial/50 lbs. axial provide maximum durability for applications that require superior strength. DuraCoder brand encoders are available in six different versions: SSI, Digital, Analog, Incremental, DeviceNet, and Ethernet/IP.
Applications that benefit (http://amci.com/rotary-encoders/rotary-encoder-applications.asp) from the stainless steel DuraCoder design include food/beverage processing, specialty vehicles, cranes, energy generation equipment, chemical/petroleum processing, wastewater treatment plants, offshore/marine environments, steel mills, and many other indoor and outdoor installations. With the ability to withstand the harshest environments, the DuraCoder remains the perfect solution for heavy-duty applications.
AMCI prides itself in designing and manufacturing encoders that meet the demands of the most severe applications. Visit our website to learn about these and other AMCI products: www.amci.com
