Would you like to...
... know how fast your conveyor belt is running?
... know how many metres of material should be processed?
... stop or restart your production process after a specific exact length.
With our components you can easily measure and display all of this information.
Position measurement, rotation speed measurement or length measurement, with an incremental rotation control encoder and a TICO 772, various applications can be used. The right measuring wheel for the material to be measured, combined with the flexible mechanics, ensure that the material and system are adapted to changes and that no incorrect measurements or damage can occur on the components.
So that the measurement results are not falsified when driving the system using measuring wheels, it must be ensured that the slippage is kept as small as possible. When selecting the profile (surface), the nature of the material to be measured, its elasticity, thickness and drag resistance must be taken into account.
In addition, the slippage is also influenced by the width of the measuring wheel applied to the material, the contact pressure, the tensile stress in the material to be measured and the wrap angle.
The wrap angle should be as wide as possible. The central part of the wheels is made of cast metal or plastic (shown by the identification markings).
The position of the measuring wheel should be chosen so that the direction of the flow of materials is away from the bearing point of the encoder.
With the incremental encoder ICURO RI58 clamping flange, a position, length or speed can be recorded with high precision. A precision of up to 10,000 "real read" pulses can be output.
Configurable with different resolutions, shaft sizes and connections.
The universal TICO 772 counter is perfectly designed for use in the length measuring system, whether as a tachometer, batch or shift counter. With its simple operation, it makes it easy for the user to adjust to the requirements of the application.
The spring arm is ideally suited to ensure precise and reliable length measurements, working in combination with the measuring wheel and rotary encoder with a longer spring movement. The 6 drilled holes for fixing, each offset by 60° around a circle of 48 mm diameter, ensure an optimal alignment and assembly of the rotary encoder. The spring arm can be fitted from both sides, so the direction of the spring load can be changed. The pre-stressing and the resulting contact pressure can be individually adjusted using the two front screws.
Thanks to the well-coordinated springs, the contact pressure of the measuring wheel on the material to be measured is ensured at all times.
The rotary encoder can be fitted as required using the drilled fixing holes.
