Magnetic Absolute Rotary Encoders are precise, rugged, compact.

November 25, 2014

Intended for use in ambient conditions that prove challenging for mechanical systems, ENA58IL and ENA36IL are based on noncontact, magnetic detection principle; use 2-axis Hall sensor; and have no mechanical gearing. Inclusion of Wiegand sensor turns these single-turn absolute rotary encoders into multiturn absolute rotary encoders. Along with accuracies up to 0.1°, encoders offer resolution up to 16 bit (single turn) and 32 bit (multiturn) and signal processing time of <100 µsec. Read More
