Roller encoder units
SKF roller encoder units are plug-and-play sensor bearing units designed for applications with outer ring rotation. The encoder units incorporate a sealed 6201 SKF Explorer deep groove ball bearing. They can be easily integrated into pulleys, cams, rollers or wheels to provide a compact outer ring rotation encoder assembly (fig. 1). The sealed bearing is lubricated for the life of the bearing. On request, SKF can supply roller encoder units complete with customized gears, wheels or pulleys. Basic data for the SKF roller encoder unit are listed in table 1. For detailed specifications, contact the SKF application engineering service.
