The new magnetic rotary encoders are very reliable even under harsh industrial environments. They operate on the basis of an extremely effective magnetic detection principle and have proven to be ideal for use anywhere challenging ambient conditions due to dust, liquids, temperature, vibrations, or shocks are present. The new magnetic rotary encoder technology is extremely robust and guarantees a long service life.
Rotary encoders are suitable for measuring the rotation, angular speed, or position of moving parts in a wide range of areas. In comparison to other magnetic encoders the new magnetic encoder family offers unique robustness and precision. They achieve precisions of 1° to 0.1°, singleturn resolutions of up to 16 Bit Singleturn, and a multiturn resolution of up to 39 Bit.
Besides high reliability and a long service life the new magnetic encoder technology makes smaller housings possible. A Wiegand wire for multiturn and Hall sensor for singleturn is included on a single PCB. This enables compact singleturn absolute rotary encoders to be created up to 36 mm housing.
