Heavy Duty, Hollow Shaft Encoder has dual output feature.

Press Release Summary:

NEMA 4/13-rated HS35 uses 2 sets of internal electronics to send identical isolated output signals to 2 separate connectors. If one output becomes electrically damaged, cable can be moved from one connector to other to minimize downtime. Dual output feature can also supply 2 separate controllers from single encoder. Along with mechanically parallel and electrically isolated connectors, product features cast metal housing, dual preloaded bearings, and rotating shaft seals.

Original Press Release:

Reduce Downtime and Save Costs with Dual Output Encoder

Goleta - The new dual output option for the HS35 hollow shaft encoder from BEI provides redundant encoder signals to ensure maximum control system reliability. This feature uses two sets of internal electronics to send identical isolated output signals to two separate connectors. If one output becomes electrically damaged, simply move the cable from one connector to the other. Your downtime is measured in minutes, not hours or days.

The dual output feature also has the capability to supply two separate controllers from a single encoder. Since the connectors are mechanically parallel and electrically isolated, connecting to a second controller and routing the cable is straightforward. Now you can save the cost and space of a second encoder with a single installation.

The HS35 series encoder is a heavy-duty hollow shaft design with a rugged cast metal housing and dual preloaded bearings for robustness and reliability. Rotating shaft seals and a sealed connector give it NEMA 4, 13 and IP65 ratings. It can accommodate a variety of shafts bores, up to 1 inch in diameter, and has a compact installed package length of just over 2 inches. This makes the HS35 ideal for equipment with constrained axial encoder mounting space.
