Principle of function
Controlflex is a precision coupling designed to meet the mechanical and metrological requirements of encoders. Through its unique function element, the compact shaft encoder coupling combines extremely low restoring force and low stress on the encoder bearings with constant angle-synchronous transmission of the rotary movement. This backlash-free coupling is electrically insulating, easy to assemble, designed for speeds up to 25,000 min-1, and thus the ideal coupling for shaft encoders, encoders and tachometers.
Short axial design. This line is specially designed for encoder applications where the coupling must be integrated into an axially limited installation space. The couplings of this line provide radial, axial and angular displacement capacity up to 1 mm, 0.7 mm and 1.5° respectively. They are available for shaft diameters from 6 to 20 mm.
