AMCI Stainless Steel Resolver Tranducers Designed for Extreme Duty and Food Grade Applications
AMCI realise the need for extreme-duty sensor feedback in harsh industrial environments, and in response, provide a family of stainless steel resolver transducers. These reliable products are distributed nationaly in Australia by Automated Control Engineering (ACE).
Options include 303 or 304 stainless steel housing and shaft, and a variety of mounting styles. The IP67 rated product line comes standard with either a 1/4', 3/8”, or 5/8” stainless steel shaft and an oversized double row sealed bearing. The input shaft in each of these stainless steel resolvers extends through the internal core of the resolver rotor windings. This one-piece rotor design eliminates internal coupling components, maximizes reliability and increases shaft strength.
Durability was the highest priority when designing AMCI’s stainless steel resolver transducer family. The optional 5/8” stainless steel shaft boasts exceptional shaft loading, and the high temperature rating up to 150°C (302°F) provides reliability where most sensors fail. Mechanically connected to the shaft of the controlled machine, these transducers are subject to severe conditions such as vibration, mechanical shock, and possibly contaminates such as coolants, salt water mist, and caustic vapors. For food and beverage applications where sanitizing wash downs are required, the stainless steel housing and robust IP67 rating will withstand all cleaning solutions and hose spray.
AMCI considered food grade requirements when designing these resolvers. The non-porous nature of stainless steel will not support growth of mold, mildew, or bacteria. This provides a hygienic, easy to clean solution for customers manufacturing, processing, or packaging food. While high performance applications like those found in steel mills, paper factories, ship loading, and mining applications are the inspiration for these extreme-duty rotary sensors.
