CONTROLFLEX shaft coupling ideal for encoders

The Controlflex shaft coupling from SCHMIDT-KUPPLUNG is the ideal partner for shaft encoders.

The compact design consists of two annodised aluminium hubs and a unique middle element that transmits torque at constant velocity.  Most importantly, the unique element accommodates all kinds of shaft misalignment but also exhibits very low restoring forces, making it ideal for both encoder and tacho use.

Controlflex is easy to install, can act as a electrically insulator between shafts and as standard are balanced for high rpm applications up to 25.000 rpm.  This includes the quick and easy clamp style hub versions. There are four series of these encoder suited couplings for differerent application requirements.

The Standard series is the choice for all standard encoders and tachos, offering outer diameters ranging from 19 mm to 37 mm. The series accomodates a maximum radial misalignment capacity depending on size up to 1 mm and a maximum angular misalignment capacity up to 1.5 Degrees. Standard bore combinations range from 3 mm up to 20 mm from stock.

The Impuls Plus series is designed for high resolution encoders with maximum accuracy. Due to this series compact and very short overall length the coupling can be integrated into a very tight axial space. The series Industry is offered with an increased range of outer diameters and bores specially for robust industrial encoders with larger shaft dimensions.

Interestingly customer specific encoder applications can be also be supplied. Stacey Taylor at Abssac says,  “At Abssac, we like to work with the customer to meet a technical solution within budget and the Controlflex couplings allows that flexability“.

To date applications requiring expanding or hollow shafts, D-shaped bores or keyway connections ,special hub lengths to fit into specific customers´s envelope as well as axially-fixed versions have been supplied.
