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

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.
