Incremental Rotary Encoders Simplify Machine Safety Implementation
Tue, 03/23/2010 - 9:58am
This series of incremental rotary encoders' functional safety enables economical system integration, providing easier connection methods to the control system and allowing it to be used in high safety category systems. The encoders have a sin/cos interface, 1,024 or 2,048 signal periods, and are thermally stabilized for high resolution interpolation. They operate at 5.0 VDC ±5% and deliver a maximum output frequency of 200 kHz in operating temperatures ranging from -20°C to 80°C. They are rated to handle axial shaft loads of 40 N at maximum 6,000 RPM or 10 N at maximum 12,000 RPM, and radial shaft loads of 60 N at maximum 6,000 RPM or 20 N at maximum 12,000 RPM.
