Encoder-Flex 1024
Rotary Shaft Encoder & Gate Position Monitor
EFLEX10242V34CAI

The Encoder-Flex 1024 is a rotary shaft encoder that monitors slide gate position, shaft position, or shaft speed. Examples include position of rack and pinion gates, valves, distributors, and shaft speed on rotating shafts such as slow moving conveyors, mixers, and dryers.

The Encoder-Flex 1024 uses innovative technology to monitor gate position or shaft speed. The resolution is programmable from 1-1024 pulses per revolution and it consists of 4-20 mA output as well as quadrature pulsed output for directional speed, and a Modbus RTU communications for advanced configuration and diagnostics.

There are two status LEDs for easy identification of operational mode and target detection. The unit is quickly calibrated with the touch of a magnet for shaft speed, angular shaft position, or gate position. The sealed body is constructed from stainless steel.

    Watchdog™ Super Elite (WDC4)

    Watchdog Super Elite hazard monitor (WDC4)
    Watchdog™ Super Elite (WDC4)

    The Watchdog Super Elite (WDC4) is easy to install and simple to set-up. The system processes signals from sensors for belt misalignment, belt speed & slip, continuous bearing temperature, pulley misalignment and plug conditions for bucket elevators or belt conveyors.  When an alarm is detected it will sound an alarm and provide shutdown control of the elevator/conveyor and feeding system.
     
    A 3.5” LCD screen displays the entire system status at a glance.  Password protected controller settings can be set up either directly on the LCD screen, or by a PC application and transferred to the WDC4 via an SD card.
    The Watchdog Super Elite can be connected directly to a PLC using the Modbus TCP/IP protocol, or integrated into HazardMon.com®.  This secure cloud based solution provides live system status, graphs and historical data that is viewable on any web-enabled device (smart phone, tablet, desktop PC).

    IE-Node

    IE-Node
    IE-Node

    The Industrial Ethernet Node (IE-NODE) is a remote monitoring interface designed to provide sensor data to PLC’s or other automation and control systems.

    Both units can be expanded to 16 sensor inputs with the installation of optional expansion boards.

    The IE-NODE operates by reading its sensor inputs and sending processed data when requested by another system (e.g. PLC). The units are equipped with an RJ45 Ethernet socket and supports PROFINET, EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP/IP protocols for easy integration with Siemens, Allen-Bradley Rockwell, Modicon and other PLC’s or automation devices.

    The IE-NODE’s network configurator software provides a visual view of all devices on the network. It allows for easy identification of each unit on the network and allows for network settings to be changed as needed.

    PRODUCT DETAILS

    How do I calibrate the 4-20 mA output?     
        There is a magnet included with the Encoder-Flex 1024 that is used to calibrate speed, rotational position, or gate position. Optionally, it can be calibrated using the PC software over the Modbus RTU communications.     
              

    Can I change the resolution or do I need to specify when ordering?     
        The Encoder-Flex 1024 can be programmed for 1 to 1024 pulses per revolution. By default, it will be set to 64 PPR, but can be reprogrammed in the factory or on site by using the PC software over the Modbus RTU communications..

    Hazard Monitoring Design Service

    Hazard Monitoring Design Service

    Preventative maintenance can help reduce the risk of equipment failure and consequent downtimes. When it comes to monitoring your bucket elevators and belt conveyors, 4B can recommend you the ideal combination of sensors and monitoring systems to suit your requirements and budget.

    4B provides an extensive range of their own ATEX / IECEx / CSA approved hazard monitoring systems, misalignment switches and bearing temperature monitors and level controls. We can offer you anything from a replacement sensor to a fully integrated hazard monitoring system which can be operated either as a stand-alone system or connected to your PLC.

    And if you do not want to install hazard monitoring sensors on every piece of equipment in your plant straightaway, we can offer you a scalable solution starting with carefully chosen equipment and systems that can be expanded at a later date to encompass other machines in the plant.

    We can also offer you an installation service, and we do provide a competent after-sales technical service to help you overcome any technical problems with your monitoring equipment.

    To get a recommendation from our engineers, please fill in the electronics questionnaire below. Please fill this form in as accurately as possible to allow us to deal with your enquiry more effectively.
