BEI Sensors (Goleta, CA) announced the Model LP35 explosion-proof and flameproof, low-profile, hollow shaft encoder that features a 2.01" profile and is designed to meet UL, ATEX, and IECEx standards for operation directly in Division 1, Zone 1 environments such as oil and gas. The encoder features a standard removable terminal box, and eliminates the need for an additional intrinsic safety barrier. It is designed for oil and gas applications such as top drives, which have little space to install speed-sensing devices like encoders. The vibration-resistant encoder is built to withstand up to 250G for operation in harsh drilling applications, and operates in temperatures up to 85 °C (185 °F). The encoder’s terminal box configuration allows the unit to be pre-wired.
