High precision, harsh environment angle encoders

Written by: Laura Hopperton | Published:

UK firm Zettlex has expanded its IncOder range of high precision, harsh environment angle encoders.

As well as the existing range of absolute digital outputs, the expanded product family now includes A/B pulse outputs; electrically duplex formats; resolution choices from 1k to 4M counts per rev; and analogue voltage outputs for all sizes from 25 to 200mm bore.

The range now also includes products aimed at the aerospace and defence sectors, offering features such as extended burn-in testing, conductive surface finishes, -60°C operating temperature and leaded solder.

The encoders utilise a special inductive technology to enable a low profile, large bore, bearing-less sensor. The form factor makes it easy for designers to accommodate through shafts, slip-rings, hydraulic pipes or electrical cables which can simply pass through the middle of the sensor.

High precision is achievable without fine installation tolerances and the need for environmental protection is minimal because the sensors are unaffected by most foreign matter.
