Many large asynchronous and synchronous induction motors and generators are used in environments where conditions are harsh and the performance of the encoder is vital for the control of the motor. This new inductive encoder model was developed based on needs specified by major heavy duty motor manufacturers and from years of experience from various heavy duty industries including pulp & paper, steel, marine and offshore sectors.
Use of inductive technology extends the encoder’s lifetime in harsh operating conditions. The technology also makes it possible to make the encoder smaller and lighter compared with conventional heavy duty encoders while maintaining comparable or enhanced performance.
This particular model can easily be mounted to the machine using a stub shaft extension on the motor which enables the manufacturer to standardize their mechanical interface toward the encoder.
In essence the MHI 5-series of the encoders from Leine Linde can be used on the largest motors at a reasonable expense.
- Improved lifetime compared with conventional ø58 mm encoders
- Smaller & lighter, but with performance comparable to traditional heavy duty encoders
- Mounting on stub-shaft extension of the motor compliant with SIEMENS and ABB mounting procedures
