I noticed this sensor on 1114’s shooter, and it looks similar to an encoder, just a whole lot more robust. If anybody could tell me what it is and give me a part number, it would be much appreciated.
After looking at some of the other pictures in that dropbox I noticed that 1114 has an “Industrial Encoder Corporation” sticker on their robot, which led me to this url after a google search. http://www.industrialencoder.ca/products.php?id=23
It could also be a greyhill encoder.
EDIT: Forget it, wrong picture.
Where could you find pricing for these? They look like they would be super expensive.
They look like hollow shaft encoders. Also the IS280 has a max rpm of 6000 rpm but I’m pretty sure that 1114 is running there shooter wheels at a much higher speed ( I think i read 25,000 rpm somewhere)
I think it may be this http://www.industrialencoder.ca/downpdf.php?id=30 because of the mounting pattern and strain relief style but it still has the 6000 rpm limit. It also has 3600 ppm which probably means it is crazy expensive (400$<)
Pretty sure 1114 only ran their shooter wheels at 2,500 rpm. In this video they give out a lot of their specs:
You could always contact 1114 I have heard they are very, very nice and are open to many questions, it doesn’t hurt to shoot them an email.
