AMCI has announced that its Duracoder brand encoders are now available with stainless steel housings and an IP69K rating for operation in extreme industrial conditions.

AMCI said applications that can benefit from the stainless steel Duracoder include: food and beverage processing; specialty vehicles; cranes; energy generation equipment; chemical and petroleum processing; wastewater treatment plants; offshore/marine environments; steel mills; and other indoor and outdoor installations.

The Duracoders are said to have a superior shaft load rating, providing a longer lifecycle than competitor encoders.

AMCI’s Duracoders reliably perform in industrial applications requiring encoders that can withstand a variety of harsh environments.

With a standard IP67 rating and IP69K-rated versions available, end users can benefit from the Duracoder’s protection against high-pressure and high-temperature washdowns, or liquid ingress from long-term immersion in water or contaminants.

AMCI’s Duracoder product line comes standard with a 2.5in (63mm) housing and an oversized double row sealed bearing.

Solid-shaft and hub-shaft versions are available with a variety of sizing options.

Shaft loadings of up to 100lb radial/50lb axial provide maximum durability for applications that require superior strength.

Duracoder brand encoders are available in six different versions: SSI, digital, analogue, incremental, Devicenet and Ethernet/IP.
