Incremental Encoders withstand harsh environments.

Press Release Summary:

Through use of magnetic hub, ES Series is completely enclosed and sealed. Hub is installed on equipment's mating shaft, leaving small air gap between it and encoder, isolating encoder from high shock and vibration. Units have IP67 rating and are completely protected from environmental fluids, dust, dirt, and water immersions.

Original Press Release:

Sealed Encoders Ideal for Harsh Environments

BEI Industrial Encoders, Goleta, CA, is an operation of Custom Sensors & Technologies, Inc. -

BEI introduces the ES encoder series, a new line of environmentally sealed encoders designed specifically for harsh industrial applications. Through the use of a magnetic hub, these rugged incremental encoders are completely enclosed and sealed. The hub is installed on the equipment's mating shaft, leaving a small air gap between it and the encoder. This isolates the encoder from high shock and vibration and makes them highly tolerant of shaft misalignment, meaning no more broken couplings! With an amazing IP67 rating, the ES encoder series are completely protected from environmental fluids, dust, dirt, grime, and even water immersions.

Environmentally sealed encoders are ideal for applications with heavy wash-downs, temporary water immersions, and excessive shock, vibration or environmental debris. The ES series combines accuracy, repeatability and robustness needed for use in harsh environments and can help reduce costly downtime of your system.
