The RoHS compliant KX magnetic encoders provide high performance in harsh or difficult environments where traditional encoders don’t work or don’t last. Available in standard and custom configurations, these rotary magnetic encoders offer OEMs affordable solutions in any quantity—from prototype to high volume production. Because the KX encoders are magnetic rather than optical, they are immune to dust, dirt, oil, water, and other contaminants found in harsh environments. Their high performance characteristics include resolution up to 45,000 cycles per revolution, maximum speed up to 100,000 RPM, and accuracy of >=4 arc minutes. These encoders feature rugged construction that tolerates high vibration and shock and a non-contact design that eliminates wear and aging.
