Press Release Summary:
HD20-S31 has 3 bearings that enable high axial and radial shaft loading, while sustaining speeds of 5000 rpm. Maximum radial shaft loading is 70 lb and maximum axial shaft loading is 80 lb. Encoder is suitable for applications where belt pulleys or other load-producing hardware are attached directly to encoder shaft. Encoder provides 10 to 2500 pulses per revolution with line driver or open collector outputs, and has maximum output frequency of 100kHz.

3-Bearing Incremental Engineered for High Shaft Load Applications
DAYTON, OH - Stegmann, Inc. introduces the HD20-S31 Heavy Duty Incremental Encoder. The HD20-S31 features a three bearing design that enables high axial and radial shaft loading, while sustaining speeds in excess of 5000 rpm.
This incremental encoder provides IP65 protection, and features a small two-inch diameter housing and a heavy-duty shaft. It is ideal for applications where belt pulleys or other load-producing hardware are attached directly to the encoder shaft, and it eliminates the need for bulky and expensive bearing isolation modules.
The HD20-S31 provides 10 to 2500 pulses per revolution with line driver or open collector outputs. With standard duty cycles, the HD20-S31 can provide more than double the bearing life of incremental encoders that feature a standard two bearing design, at the same shaft loading. This incremental encoder provides maximum output frequency to 100kHz and maximum operating speed to 5000 rpm. Maximum radial shaft loading is 70 lbs. and maximum axial shaft loading is 80 lbs.
Stegmann is a wholly owned subsidiary of Max Stegmann GmbH in Donaueschingen, Germany. Stegmann is a world leader in the design and manufacture of incremental, absolute and linear encoders, as well as motor feedback systems.
