The model 290T is a family of mill duty industrial-grade
optical incremental encoders developed to provide rugged thru-shaft
drive for additional add-on components such as resolvers, mechanical
overspeed switches, etc.
The 290T series uses
the same solid state LED codewheel illumination as other CCI
pulse tachometers. Read-head
electronics are on a single chip of silicon which is encapsulated
for extremely long life.
Electrical characteristics conform to standard
CCI specifications (see General Pulse Tachometer Specifications)
All mounting options are shown on Mounting
Options Product page. These are available along with foot mounts
to replace a BC46 or an Avtron M785. All foot mounted devices maintain
the CCI feature of a "one-time" unit alignment. The piloted tachometer
body separates from the foot-mount bracket for rapid change-out.
