SKF motor encoder units have been tested successfully under various speeds and loads:
- 500 hours at 125 °C (255 °F), with intermittent peaks of up to 10 minutes at 150 °C (300 °F)
100 hours at –40 °C (–40 °F)
The permissible operating temperature for SKF motor encoder units can be limited by:
- the bearing (→ Temperature limits of Deep groove ball bearings)
- the sensor
Where temperatures outside the permissible range are expected, contact SKF.
