Customization is our specialty at Joral LLC, ProxEncoder sensors are built to order, and engineered to function as you desire. Joral will custom design your hardware or software to maximize your solution.
The control environment is a nasty place - water - oil - shock and vibration - you must design the solutions to these issues into the sensor, not just add them on at the end. ProxEncoder is totally encapsulated in epoxy - IP69K - Mil Spec for Shock and Vibration - Able to function submerged in water or oil.
"A rotary magnetic encoder assembly of non-contact or “contactless” construction having an internally disposed first exciter or sensor magnet magnetically coupled to an externally disposed second application or drive magnet attached to an encoder shaft that rotates the sensor magnet substantially in unison during encoder shaft rotation." US Pat # 9018943
The ProxEncoder True Non-Contact Rotary Position Sensor, is able to sense the angular position of a magnet from up to 1/2 inch away.
Sense range like a Linear Proximity Switch - Output like a Rotary Encoder.
Joral's ProxEncoder is covered by two USPTO patents on the TRUE Non-Contact Angle Sensing. The Application Magnet is mounted on the rotating equipment. The ProxEncoder Non-Contact Sensor is placed in alignment with the Application Magnet. Flux lines from the Application Magnet attach to the encoder moving magnet and cause it to align with the moving magnet inside the ProxEncoder Sensor. The ProxEncoder Non-Contact sensor then reports the actual angle of the Application magnet via the selected Output Format.
ProxEncoder is just the start of a whole line of encoders, designed as a universal solution for engineers all over the world, to make sensing and installation simple, easy, customizable, and consistent.
