AV56 THIN-LINE III™ heavy mill duty modular magnetic encoders fit standard 4.5" C-Face motors such as Marathon Blue and Black Max, as well as Baldor Reliance models. The stainless steel AV56S is designed for washdown and marine duty. Other THIN-LINE III models, ranging from 115mm to 8.5", are available to fit other motor sizes.
THIN-LINE III encoders feature simple installation, durable construction, and clear diagnostics to eliminate encoder-related downtime:
First, the magnetic sensors are fully potted, to withstand dirt and liquids. No glass disks, no optics to clog. There are no moving, wearing parts!
The patented Wide-Gap™ Cam Screw Rotors™ put an end to sensor damage, are simpler to install, and stay securely mounted to the shaft.
The universal 5-24V design drives longer cables and is protected against wiring errors and surges.
When you power up an AV56, you know you installed it right: the green LED tells you the digital self-tuning has set your AV56 optimally.
If at any time, the AV56 cannot produce ideal signals, the LED changes to red and the remote alarm contact activates. Even wiring errors and short circuits are detected and indicated by changing the LED to orange. However, the encoder keeps working to give you time to schedule service.
With a real-world installation history of over 4,500,000 hour MTBF, AV56 encoders will keep your machine running 24/7/365!
