Accessories for Speed Sensors
AI-Tek Instruments have designed and manufactured a variety of durable speed sensor accessories for your convenience. These accessories are recommended to ensure that your AI-Tek sensors operate at peak performance. For more detailed product information on the accessories, be sure to visit our Brochures & Catalogs section.
Split Gears & Solid Gears
Split Gears: When using an AI-Tek speed sensor in RPM measurement, split gears provide a convenient and simple means of installation where shaft disassembly is not feasible. The two halves of the gear are fastened with clamping screws, thus assuring close fit. All split gears are 12 diametral pitch, 14.5° pressure angle.
Solid Gears: AI-Tek also offers a 20 diametral pitch, 14.5° pressure angle, solid steel gear. This gear can be rebored to fit shaft diameters up to 3.750". It is secured to the shaft with 2 set screws.
Connectors and Cable Assemblies
AI-Tek stocks a selection of connectors and cable assemblies for your convenience. For ease of selection, the connectors and assemblies are divided into groups:
Complete cable assemblies include the connector and 10' of recommended wiring for use with AI-Tek equipment. All wiring is insulated, spirally wrapped in a tinned copper shield and jacketed in long-lasting PVC, Teflon or polyolefin insulation. Alternate cable length is 50', use -050 for final suffix.
AI-Tek tachometer transducers are self-generating units when used with speed sensors, designed to:
The AI-Tek sleeve-type transducer assembly is identical to the Taper-Lock type except that it provides a sleeve bushing with two set screws for installation purposes, allowing larger shaft sizes.
The assembly consists of a Taper-Lock bushing which enables quick attachment to rotating shafts. As the transducer employs a rotor with small perforations along its periphery (a permanently lubricated sealed bearing) an outer ring and a reference rod which, when clamped in position, prevent the outer ring assembly from moving. The outer ring can accommodate up to three-speed sensors for use in monitoring directions of rotation and speed.
Sensor Mounting Brackets
Several types of brackets are available to facilitate the mounting of AI-Tek speed sensors:
