BI Technologies Develops Analog Turns Counting Dial with Enhanced Accuracy, Improved Locking Mechanism



Providing instrumentation and test equipment design engineers with an economical device for precision rotary indication, TT electronics BI Technologies has developed an enhanced design for its analog turns counting dials. Designated the Model RB/RBM Series, the 1 - 13/16" diameter turns counting dial has the capability to count up to 15 turns, and features superior turning tightness with an improved locking mechanism to meet the requirements for a wide range of industrial automation and instrumentation applications. Each dial is individually packaged to prevent damage during shipment. According to Richard Hsieh, Marketing Director for BI Technologies Electronic Components Division, the redesigned turns counting dials provide customers with improved performance as well as shorter lead times. "With new tooling and an improved assembly process, our design engineers were able to add these product enhancements and still deliver within four weeks at competitive pricing," he explained. Turns counting dials are ideal for a wide range of panel control applications, including instrumentation, bench-top power supplies, medical electronics and industrial automation equipment. The 1 - 13/16" outer diameter Model RB/RBM Series turns counting dials feature a maximum counting capacity of 15 turns, with a positive action locking mechanism and a satin chrome housing. Shaft diameter is Ľ" or 6mm with a bushing diameter of 3/8". Operating temperature range is -55°C to +71°C.
