PE18-BX ProxEncoder® is Patented for True Non-Contact Position Sensing

Press Release Summary:

PE18-BX ProxEncoder® Rotary Encoder offers quadrature, CAN J1939, PWM and analog outputs with rectangular design. The unit is used for detecting on-axis rotation with up to 12 mm air gap between application and sensor with a 2.5 mm axial misalignment and 30° planar tilt. The encoder is suitable for mobile hydraulic and industrial installations and allows mounting on flat surfaces. Unit withstands destructive environments such as in hydraulic oil, dust control spray, or corrosive wash.

Original Press Release:

Joral Introduces PE18-BX ProxEncoder® True Non-Contact Rotary Encoder – Rectangular Design Allows Easy Mounting on Flat Surfaces

Mukwonago, WI PE18 ProxEncoder® non-contact rotary encoder product line receives a square housing with side sense capacity. Enhancing the original PE18 proximity style form factor, the new rectangular design allows for easy mounting on flat surfaces. Two USPTO patents enable the PE18-BX ProxEncoder® to detect on-axis rotation with up to 0.5” (12mm) air gap between the application and sensor. 

The PE18-BX is 100% encapsulated for an IP69k configuration that survives destructive conditions like submersion in hydraulic oil, deep sea salt water, dust control spray, or corrosive wash. The PE18 ProxEncoder product line is designed to cater to both mobile hydraulic and industrial installations. It is available in common communications including analog, quadrature, and CAN J1939.

Highlights of the Joral PE18 ProxEncoder® include:

  • Face or side oriented sensor target area
  • Patented true non-contact position sensing:
    • 0.5” (12mm) gap between sensor and application
    • 0.10” (2.5mm) axial misalignment
    • 30° planar tilt
  • IP69k environmental protection class
  • Rated MIL-STD 202 for shock and vibration resistance
  • Available Outputs: Quadrature, CAN J1939, PWM, Analog, and more
  • Customizable connector options available
