Baumer Thalheim Tachogenerators are widely used throughout the automation industry and are well proven, accurate and reliable. These Units are avaialable in either AC or DC with various mounting arrangements and options to suit each application.
Where improved speedholding (1%) is required from motors running at 50 r/min and above, an a.c. rectified tachogenerator can be easily retrofitted to all the Stockline d.c. motors. The tachogenerator could also be fitted directly to machinery shafts or the back of a.c. motors to provide a speed reference for d.c. controllers or inverters.
By utilising a d.c. design, the effective speed range is extended. This makes the unit suitable for low speed applications and 4 quadrant drives. The unit has IP54 protection which enables its use in more demanding applications. The two tachogenerators described below are physically similar but have different voltage outputs.
Long-life flange mounted tachogenerator.
This high quality d.c. tachogenerator is designed to offer long life for reduced maintenance. The unit is flange mounted and can be adapted to fit onto the B-shield of the Lenze GFQU motor. The output is 60V/1000 r/min as standard.
