Courtesy: Liene & LindeLeine & Linde’s 800 rotary encoder series includes an integrated over-speed capability with programmable switching speeds. The incremental encoder signal is complemented with a separate relay output for over-speed to protect equipment from damage due to loss of control. The integration is commonly used in industrial applications like wind turbines, steel plants, or loading cranes. 800 rotary encoder provides programmable over-speed flexibility for different installations in the plant. Programming is made over USB with help of PC software. Up to three separate relay outputs can be configured with different switching speeds. Over-speed outputs are available for the 850 shaft encoder and 861/862 through-shaft encoders.
