Sensor-Technik UK reports that the ENIX 50 universal encoder uses all of Micronor's latest technologies to save cost, save space and increase reliability in industrial rotary measurement applications on shafts from 6 to 15mm.
With its 50mm-diameter housing and a depth of just 37.5mm, the ENIX 50 is compatible with all standard 58mm size encoders, providing immediate space and cost savings. Its hollow-shaft design features Micronor's Safety lock bearing construction that resists damage caused by inadvertent loading during installation and increases the overall life of the encoder - thereby further reducing the total cost of ownership by aliminating the nee for maintenance and replacement.
The rugged encoder features a solid die-cast housing, sealed to IP65 or IP67, and it has a wide operating temperature range of -40 to +85degC. The level of shaft sealing does, however, have an impact on the maximum speed rating of the encoder: IP67 sealing reduces the maximum permissible speed from 12,000 to 6000rpm.
ENIX 50 encoders are protected against shock and vibration, and meet all CE marking requirements for electrical safety and electromagnetic compatibility. Units are UL approved and can be supplied as explosion-proof assemblies for use in Zones 2 and 22.
Resolutions and interfaces
The ENIX 50 series is available with a choice of standard resolutions from 1 to 3600 pulses per revolution. There are also many connection options, including cables and M12 connectors, and outputs can be specified as RS422 or push-pull. All outputs are protected against short circuits.
Application versatility is further enhanced by a wide operating voltage range. All encoders in the family operate from 5-30V DC supplies, which avoids the need to specify different models for each individual application.
