Tachometer, encoder maker acquired by competitor

ServoTek Products Company Inc. (Hawthorne, New Jersey), a manufacturer of instrument-grade tachometers and encoders, has been acquired by The Marsh Bellofram Group of Companies.

ServoTek manufacturing has been moved to Marsh Bellofram global corporate headquarters in Newell, West Virginia, and both standard and custom products will continue to be available under the ServoTek brand, with customer service and technical sales support also transferred to Newell.

ServoTek tachometers provide a means of converting rotational speed into an isolated analog voltage signal suitable for remote indication and feedback control. They are well-suited to precision integrator and velocity servo applications, both of which require a high linear speed and voltage relationship with minimum ripple of <3% of the DC value at any speed in excess of 40 RPM.   The companies encoders are designed to adapt to DC motors and meet typical industry requirements for a low-cost, easy mount digital feedback device. Their design incorporates both housing and hub into a single assembly, alleviating the need for tedious coupling or alignment procedures. “The instrument-grade products offered by ServoTek are a natural extension of our industrial lines and will complement the existing WESTCON line of tachometers already manufactured at our Newell facility,” said Notes Joe Colletti, Jr., Bellofram company president.
