Monitor generator or alternator shaft speed

Monitor generator or alternator shaft speed

Maintain precise shaft speed regulation

The solution

Regulating generator or alternator shaft speed is critical to controlling the power quality being fed into the grid. Balluff's magnetic ring encoder operates without mechanical contact between the reader head and coded ring. The generous reading distance of the system tolerates real-world variability in concentricity about the rotational axis, increasing installation flexibility and reducing costs.

The features

  • Systems available for a wide range of shaft diameters, including very large shaft sizes
  • Simple, space-saving installation
  • Non-contact, wear-free operation for long service life
  • High counts per revolution for precise speed regulation
