Electro Cam Corp. designs and produces a full line of Programmable Limit Switches, Electronic Cam Switches, encoders, resolvers and accessories for increased productivity in a variety of position sensing and control applications.
Outputs in standard PLµS controllers turn ON/OFF based on resolver position, regardless of the direction the resolver is turning. The “-D” Option allows outputs to be set individually, based on the direction the resolver is rotating. Outputs can also be set to operate based on increasing position or decreasing position.
Standard PLµS controllers are primarily used for continuous machine rotation. Outputs turn ON/OFF based on machine position in these applications, regardless of the direction the resolver turns. In applications where machine rotation changes, certain outputs must turn ON/OFF based on the direction of rotation. With the new “D” option, PLµS controllers allow individual outputs to be programmed in any of the following: 1) ON/OFF regardless of direction; 2) ON/OFF only with forward rotation; 3) ON/OFF only with reverse rotation.
Electro Cam Corp. has expanded its offering of geared resolvers to include ratios from 2:1 to 36:1, eliminating the need for external gear reducers in many applications where outputs are tracked over multiple revolutions, and significantly increasing resolver input effectiveness. Coupled with Internal High-Speed Logic technology in Electro Cam Corp.’s PLµS controllers, the wide range of geared resolvers makes it feasible to control the majority of machine processes.
Electro Cam geared resolvers have a specific ratio of resolver input shaft turns to resolver shaft turns. The gear reduction allows users to convert multiple machine shaft revolutions into one resolver shaft revolution without adding gear boxes, pulleys, or sprockets to obtain proper ratios.
The new geared resolvers are ideal for a variety of applications, including form/fill/seal packaging machines, cartoners, conveyors, printing, silk screening, lumber processing, metal grinding, and material handling equipment.
All Electro Cam resolvers feature heavy-duty dual bearing construction and standard mounting configurations.
