Zettlex (UK) Ltd. - PRODUCT NEWS


How low can you go?

Sensor company Zettlex has discovered that its IncOder product range is even more robust and reliable than it originally thought possible.

One of Zettlex's customers, a UK-based scientific research company, has successfully performed tests on an IncOder sensor in extremely low ambient temperatures down to
-100 deg C. Standard IncOders are rated by Zettlex to operate at temperatures down to -40 deg C.

Zettlex IncOders are non-contact, absolute angle measuring devices that use a unique inductive technique and may be considered as inductive encoders. The sensors are suitable for harsh environments such as industrial, military and aerospace equipment - where electrical contacts, optical or capacitive devices are likely to prove unreliable or pancake resolvers are too expensive.

"We're not surprised to hear from one of our customers that an IncOder is operating successfully below the rated ambient temperature of minus 40 degrees Centigrade, as we know it is such a robust technology. However, we were a little shocked to discover that the IncOder withstood such an extremely cold environment down to minus 100 degrees Centigrade. In the past, we've custom engineered IncOders that can operate down to minus 65 degrees Centigrade, but this recent discovery has exceeded everyone's expectations and again proves just how robust and reliable the IncOder actually is."

The IncOder range is available at www.zettlex.com as well as through Zettlex's international resellers.
