Born out of Lika's long-standing, solid experience in wind power industry, C100 incremental encoder was first designed for feedback of generators in wind turbines, but today it has successfully established itself into a great variety of applications even in the harshest industrial environments such as in large size electric motors and generators, iron and steel mills, cranes, portal cranes and hoists, marine installations, offshore platforms and equipment.
C100 is the sturdy heavy-duty encoder designed to reliably operate and ensure profitable efficiency in demanding installations. It enhances precision and performance and provides smooth, safe, unlimited and low cost operation. The cutting edge technology of C100 measures up to extreme requirements. A well-encapsulated aluminium housing is claimed to withstand wide temperature fluctuations (extended operating range between -40°C and +100°C) and heavy mechanical stresses (radial shaft loading up to 350 N) with IP65 protection rate; moreover it is protected by surface treatments against salt water and corrosion. Blind hollow or tapered shaft is electrically insulated (up to 10 kV) in order to preserve the robust ball bearings from damages due to eddy currents. These characteristics are all intended to ensure maximum service life and minimum downtimes in continuous operation.
Also optical and electronic components as well as cables and connectors have been selected to always cope with such stringent requirements. C100 features a full range of resolutions up to 10000 PPR with Line Driver and Lika's proven Universal incremental interfaces. Safe signal transmission at high counting frequency is granted even over long distances up to 300 m thanks to new high-performance Power Push-Pull and Power Line Driver output circuits which considerably reduce quality degradation or loss of signals on long cables run for maximum reliability without the need for repeaters or amplifiers. Today, along with standard M23 12-pin connector and cable outputs, C100 offers a further benefit: it is equipped with terminal blocks for greater comfort and convenience of installations requiring special cables. To ensure maximum stability and safe operating condition, C100 is optionally fitted with a flexible torque arm which prevents the encoder from rotating while permits all other movements at the same time thus preserving the shaft and the internal bearings. Finally C101 model is the unrivalled redundant version fitted with galvanically separated double output circuits for maximum safety requirements. It ensures the utmost safety in critical applications where failures could lead to unacceptable risks of personal injury, costly machinery damages and burdensome downtimes. Redundant version can be further installed to feed separate signals to independent applications.
