Intelligent Bearings ascertain motion status of components.
Plain Bearings (Bushings)

Intelligent Bearings ascertain motion status of components.

SKF® Sensor-Bearing Units determine motion status of rotating or axially traveling components in open- and closed-loop motion control systems. They record number of revolutions, speed, direction of rotation, relative position/counting, and accel/decel. Resistant to vibration, product construction integrates SKF Explorer class single-row deep groove ball bearing with SKF active sensor. Units...
