BEI Industrial Encoders introduced its dual output drawworks HS35 encoder for oil field applications that combines rugged, heavy-duty features into a through-shaft style for use as a winch-turns counter in the drawworks system of oil rigs. The encoder can supply simultaneous position feedback to two separate systems from a single encoder. The hard-anodized metal housing, sealed connector, IS rating, dual bearings and shaft seals for NEMA 4 and 13 (IP65) ratings combine to provide a rugged encoder that performs in the harsh oil field environment. Since the connectors are mechanically parallel and electrically isolated, connecting to a second system and routing the cable is straightforward. The outputs can have different resolutions with use of interpolation.
