These encoders are available in either incremental or absolute position sensing, with a hollowshaft construction. The entire series has all stainless steel housings; including receptacles. In conjunction with shaft seals, this gives the units an environmental rating of IP 66; insuring immunity to the harshest washdown areas. For ease of mounting, the stainless steel encoders are available with a wide variety of flange, bore, and output circuit styles.
ProfibusDP Programmable Encoders
These encoders are available in both a shaft and large bore hollowshaft construction with a Class 2 Profibus-DP fieldbus communication protocol and 25-bits of resolution (8192 per turn and 4096 turns). Profibus-DP permits the communication between devices produced by various manufacturers without the need to adapt the interfaces. Profibus-DP is a bus system that has been optimized in terms of speed and low connection costs for quick data exchange at the field level.
37 Series Composite Encoders
The 3700 can be ordered with a variety of resolutions up to 1024 PPR in quadrature, and is available with a 5-30 V differential line driver interface. Temperature and aging compensation is standard. The cable egress employs our “Tube Tech®” cable connection technology offering strain relief 10 times greater than standard PG connections and conforms to IP 67. Applications include packaging machines, material handling, pick & place machines, vehicles, medical and office equipment.
