Traction Wheel Assembly

Traction Wheel Assembly

Electro-Sensors Traction Wheel Encoder Assembly consists of a rotary shaft encoder, the traction wheel, the mounting bracket hinge clamp assembly, and the mating connector.

The traction wheel rides directly on the material being monitored. The wheel is connected to a rotary shaft encoder, which is supported by the mounting bracket. The encoder then generates a digital pulse frequency based on the number of pulses per revolution and the speed of the traction wheel. This digital signal is sent via the mating connector to a counter, ratemeter, or other control equipment.
