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.
The perfect choice for common shaft encoders. This coupling line offers an outstanding balance between precision and minimal restoring forces and is thus perfectly adapted to the needs of modern encoders. 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 3 to 20 mm.
