Dynapar will proudly feature its ATEX & AEx approved line of NorthStar heavy duty encoders designed for Zone 0 & 1 use. In addition, Dynapar will feature the new AX65, an explosion proof magnetic rotary encoder, and the new OMC Motor Kit which features the EN44.
The NorthStar EN42 and EN44 are perfect for use in Oilfield Drilling Motor applications.
New features Include:
• New high current line driver for long cable runs ATEX and AEx Certifications
Dynapar is also excited to announce a partnership with OMC, Oilfield Motor Company. The EN44 is now a part of OMC’s new Encoder Kit, which will be on display in Dynapar’s booth at OTC. Along with its new features, the EN line offers encapsulated electronics with increased safety interface for Zone 1 use and industry leading -50°C to 100°C temperature range. This innovative design eliminates the need for I.S. barriers. “After researching encoders on the market today, OMC has concluded that the Dynapar EN44 encompasses our clients’ needs. The EN44 provides the rugged construction, slim profile and reliability that OMC is looking for. We value our relationship with Dynapar and look forward to addressing the dynamic drilling market needs with our new, patented OMC Encoder” says Jeff Smith, Vice President of Sales, Oilfield, Motor and Control.
Dynapar will also feature the new explosion proof EExd rated AX65 magnetic encoder. This highly-anticipated Hengstler brand ACURO-XRobust encoder is ATEX certified, has IP66/67 ingress protection, is 12-Bit-Singleturn or Multiturn and offers multiple certifications for Gas, Dust and Mining. This encoder boasts extreme corrosion resistance with its high grade Stainless Steel housing (1.4404).
The Offshore Technology Conference is the world’s foremost event for the development of offshore resources in the fields of drilling, exploration, production, and environmental protection. OTC is held annually at Reliant Center in Houston. Each year, OTC attracts more than 60,000 attendees and 2,000 exhibiting companies representing more than 110 countries. OTC is organized and operated exclusively to promote and further the advance of scientific and technical knowledge of offshore resources and environmental matters.
The OTC is a great platform for Dynapar to showcase their specially designed encoders for Oil and Gas. As one of the most potentially volatile industries, the oil & gas industry requires reliable encoders that meet industry standards.
With ATEX & AEx Zone 0 and Zone 1 approvals, Dynapar’s NorthStar encoders offer advanced sensing technology and reliable solutions for Oil & Gas. Certified for use at -50• to 100• C, they are independently tested at up to 400G shock and 20G vibration. These unique encoders provide reliable output signal up to 1,000 feet with high current driver and offer the industry’s toughest optical engine with unbreakable disc.
For the harsh oil and gas environment, our encoders offer to oilfield equipment manufacturers and end users improved reliability, signal integrity and the necessary industry certifications. They are used in drill motors, drawworks, top drives, rotary tables, mud pumps, pipe handling, production equipment and more.
Visit Dynapar at the 2012 Offshore Technology Conference, Booth #4068, to learn more about their line of heavy duty encoders for volatile environments, as well as a hands-on look at the new AX65 and OMC Encoder Kit.
