The new MNI40 magnetic incremental rotary encoder combines a robust measuring system with intelligent diagnostic and adjustment functions in an extremely compact unit.
The magnetic encoder from Pepperl+Fuchs Drehgeber GmbH is based on the most up-to-date AMR/GMR technology and is housed in an encapsulated and highly compact enclosure with IP67 protection. These features provide the magnetic encoder with a high level of resistance to harsh environmental conditions.
Simple installation and adjustment of the MNI40 magnetic incremental rotary encoder by means of a two-color LED status indicator considerably reduce installation time. Also, due to the mechanical concept of the encoder, significantly larger hollow shaft diameters can be achieved on the MNI40 than in conventional rotary encoder solutions.
In this example, the MNI40 rotary encoder is installed on a machine tool application. Other areas of application are in machine and factory automation, wind power plants, vehicle assembly, construction machinery and mechanical handling, as well as offshore and outdoor applications.
