Product Description

Quick Specs…RIM Tach 1250

  • Thin, compact, and only 0.75 inch thick
  • Mounts to 4.5 inch 56 C-Face motors
  • Rugged, reliable magnetoresistive sensor technology
  • Easy installation with no brackets or couplings
  • Hard, anodized aluminum construction
  • Single or dual sensor outputs available

Overview / Design Principle:

This reliable encoder may be configured with one or two electrically independent and totally isolated outputs. A high-temperature version is available to meet operational needs up to 120° C. It also comes in a wide variety of shaft sizes, cover choices, and connector options.

The durable SLIM Tach® SL56 operates with unequaled resistance to grease, oil, salt water, dirt, fibers, and dust. Its hardened, encapsulated electronics make it immune to contamination, heavy machine vibration, and accidental impact, decreasing downtime. Hard, anodized aluminum of aircraft quality makes the SL56 the toughest, yet lightest, C-Face encoder available. A high power line driver comes standard and guarantees clean, crisp signals over long cable lengths, minimizing the need for signal repeaters.

Each version of the SLIM Tach® SL56 is easy to mount, requiring no bearings, adapter plates, or flexible couplings. Because the SL56 occupies only 0.75 inch of the motor shaft length, a brake, pulley, gear box, or coupling can also be placed on the shaft. The sandwich version provides double CFace mounting for applications which need the encoder between the motor and another device.

There are no bearings to fail or requirements for flexible couplings because its magnetized drum assembly is attached directly to the shaft. The mill duty latching connectors are easy to wire with no need to field solder or to struggle with a crimp pin.

Features and Benefits:

  • Thru-shaft-shaft versions are standard; double C-face sandwich version is also available
  • 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, or 2048 pulses per revolution (PPR) with optional index pulse
  • 5-24VDC operation, bi-directional quadrature signals with high power, differential line driver outputs

Applications:

The bearingless, heavy duty, NorthStar SLIM Tach® SL56 mounts directly to 4.5 inch 56 C face motors. With resolutions up to 2048 PPR, it is only 0.75 inch thick and ideal for tight machine configurations.
