Ensuring Safer Roads with Shaftless Encoders

Learn how Force America overcame the harsh winter environment to help snow removal operators reduce wasted salt by optimizing output based on vehicle speed with feedback from Dynapar's hall effect shaftless encoder.

The Challenges Overcome:

  • Tough environment including dirt, ice, mud, high shock and constant vibration
  • The corrosive ice melt material itself
  • 9-10 months of no use followed by sudden operation
  • Frequent misalignment and a wide air gap between the sensor and rotating element
  • Force America required a low cost, durable solution
