Nireco America Introduces Geared Dancer Roll Potentiometer
April 29, 2006—Nireco America Corp. introduced the Series 2699 geared dancer roll potentiometer. The heavy duty, high precision geared potentiometer is designed to produce dancer roll position feedback signals.
According to the company's press release, the new control offers 700 gear ratios from 0.06 to 25 turns, eliminating the need for external gearing or timing drives.
The potentiometer has a dual bearing design and a 1/2" input shaft that handles up to 80 lbs. of radial load. Since it does not contain internal stops, the unit can't be damaged by excessive dancer roll travel. It is rated to 1W and provides more than 1% linearity with essential infinite resolution.
