A pair of new, sealed, incremental rotary encoders of sturdy construction with reinforced bearings capable of withstanding high axial and radial loads of up to 75N, ensuring years of trouble-free service in demanding environments, is announced by Heidenhain (GB), Burgess Hill.
The IP66-rated ROD 600-series encoders are well suited to providing accurate feedback of rotary speeds up to 12,000 rpm and may be used in applications involving extremes of temperature from −20degC to +85degC and relative humidity up to 93 per cent. Five different line counts can be specified from 512 to 5,000, accuracy being +/- 1/20th of the grating period. The electrical output signals are TTL for ROD 620 and HTL for ROD 630.
Both models include a flange that allows axial or radial connection and a solid, stable shaft of 15mm diameter with key. Typical applications are on heavy duty machine tools, off-road vehicles, printing and textile machinery, paper production plant and steel mills. Numerous shaft couplings for interfacing the encoder with the rotating mechanism can be supplied.
