A global transportation company who use encoders in their equipment started to have problems when the encoders were used in harsh environments with extreme weather conditions.
The original encoders used were having difficulties coping with the extreme weather conditions and the housings were expanding and contracting. Their supplier at the time had tried to improve the environmental protection of the encoder housings without success.
Encoder Technology has extensive experience placing encoders in extreme environments and we specialise in bespoke designs. We were contacted by the transportation company who explained their problem.
Working closely with the client we designed a bespoke encoder, which was vigorously tested in extreme conditions by us prior to use. They have been so successful that we have now become designed-in to this critical equipment.
