New programmable linear measurement solution unveiled

More durability and resistance to contamination amongst benefits highlighted

A common method for creating a linear measuring solution is to use a rotary encoder, in conjunction with a measuring wheel, says British Encoder Products Company (BEPC).

“For many applications, a rotary encoder with a measuring wheel has several advantages over a linear scale encoder. When using an encoder with a measuring wheel, rather than a linear scale encoder, the application is not limited by the length of the scale, allowing indefinite measurement in one direction, without the need to return in the other direction. A rotary encoder may also be more durable and resistant to contamination, as compared to a linear scale and read head.”

Linear measurement solutions expanded

The company has introduced an addition to its line of linear measurement solutions, providing a spring-loaded mounting bracket, combined with a choice of measuring wheel. The encoder is then selected that best fits the specific linear motion control application.

This spring-loaded mounting bracket fits 2.5” (63.5mm) shafted encoders with servo mounts and 58 mm shafted encoders with clamping flanges. The bracket works with the following BEPC encoders:

  • Programmable incremental Model 25SP
  • Model A58SE absolute encoder with either EtherCAT or PROFINET communication protocol
  • Model A25SB absolute encoder with either CANopen or SSI communication protocol
  • Model A58SB absolute encoder with either CANopen or SSI communication protocol.

Basic elements

BEPC encoders are increasingly becoming the basic elements of automation systems in industries such as:

  • Machine building
  • Robotics
  • Automation and sorting
  • Aerospace
  • Food & beverage
  • Printing
  • Material handling
  • Automated guided vehicles etc.
