Using a simple USB connection and programming software, the 60 mm diameter DRS61 CoreTech incremental encoders empower customers to freely program the number of lines from 1 to 8,192, as well as the width of the zero pulse. This flexible programmability allows users to use a single type of encoder that can be programmed at any time, in any location, for any application. End users benefit from reduced inventory requirements, immediate availability, and reduced downtime. OEMs benefit by being able to use the encoder to determine the optimum PPR for their machine. They are also able to provide immediate reprogramming of the encoder to suit specific customer needs, while being able to significantly reduce encoder inventory requirements.
