AutomationDirect Adds More Koyo Incremental and Absolute Encoders

Press release date: Oct 05, 2017

AutomationDirect has expanded its Koyo encoder product line to include additional incremental encoder output options and higher resolutions for absolute encoders.

The TRD-S Series of 6mm solid shaft and TRD-SH Series of 8mm hollow shaft incremental encoders now have 5-12 VDC open collector output versions in addition to the existing 12-24 VDC open collector or 5 VDC line driver output versions. These light-duty industrial grade incremental encoders have an IP40 environmental rating with resolutions available from 100 pulses per revolution to 2500 ppr and up to a 200 kHz maximum response frequency. Koyo light-duty encoders start at $90.00 and are cost-effective for applications with light loads on the shaft and perfect for industrial environments with good mounting conditions and flexible shaft couplings.

TRD-NA Series medium-duty absolute encoders are now available in resolutions up to 2048 ppr. Starting at $271.00, these medium duty encoders feature a small 50mm diameter body with 35mm depth and have a splash proof IP65 protection rating. Koyo medium-duty absolute encoders are suitable for applications with moderate shaft loading and flexible shaft couplings and are used where position data must be retained through power cycles.

All encoders carry a 1-year warranty and have a 30-day moneyback guarantee.
