SG1000C Rotary Position Monitor
Electro-Sensors’ SG1000C is a complete position monitoring system used to accurately measure the position of a process that has a repetitive single-turn rotary movement.
Housed in a compact and rugged explosionproof NEMA 4 enclosure, the SG1000C is an encoder-based position sensor providing a 4-20 mA output and is used to measure processes that have a repetitive single turn clockwise or counter clockwise rotary movement.
Once programmed the SG1000C outputs a 4 mA DC signal when the encoder is at the beginning of its rotation (0°) and outputs a 20 mA DC signal when the encoder is at the full turn position (359°). When the encoder is at any position (between 0° and 359°) the SG1000C outputs a signal that is proportionally between 4 and 20 mA. Typically the SG1000C is used to sense the chute position of a rotary grain distributor enabling the end-user to very accurately monitor shaft position, ensuring accurate process control.
The optional TR400-SGA accepts the 4-20 mA signal from the SG1000C monitor and shows the 0° to 359° position in desired user units typically 0% to 100%. The TR400-SGA also offers two relays and a 4-20 mA proportional output. Electro-Sensors’ SG1000C position monitor improves the efficiency and safety of operations by preventing machine damage, product waste, and costly downtime.
