The harsh environment of mobile automation, wind power plants and maritime applications places particularly high demands on sensors. Sensors must withstand shocks, vibrations and temperature fluctuations. They have to be both robust and reliable.
Kübler is expanding its portfolio in the area of absolute multiturn encoders. The new Sendix M36 Series of magnetic multiturn encoders is complemented by an extremely robust variant. The Sendix M36R ensures even higher robustness and is particularly suited for demanding outdoor applications.
Its compact size of only 42 mm allows fast and simple installation in tight mounting spaces. This encoder is also available as hollow shaft variant.
The extremely robust bearing structure in Safety-Lockplus TM design withstands shocks, vibrations and installation errors. In addition, the shaft seal has a mechanical protection. All these features allow this device to achieve protection levels of IP66, IP67 and IP69k. Extra-large bearings ensure very high bearing load capacity, reaching the strength level of 58 mm-size encoders. Thus the Sendix M36R encoder provides the highest reliability and contributes very much to efficiency.
As an electronic multiturn encoder equipped with the Energy Harvesting Technology, this encoder uses neither gears nor a battery. This underlines its compactness and long service life. Thanks to this technology, cost-efficiency can be combined with compactness in the same device.
Its magnetic scanning makes this device insensitive to dust and condensation. In addition, its wide temperature range of -40°C … +85°C contributes to its high resistance.
This encoder is equipped with a standard sturdy die-cast housing. If even more robustness is required, a VA4 stainless steel variant is available, perfect for off-shore applications.
The encoder has been granted the e1 approval of the KBA (German Federal Motor Vehicle and Transport Authority). This approval sets specific requirements for EMC and on-board power supply.
With a total resolution reaching 38 bits resulting from the combination of a multiturn encoder with max. 24 bits and a highly-accurate singleturn reaching a 14-bit resolution, the encoder of the new Sendix M36R series shows a particularly high versatility that opens many new application possibilities.
This encoder is equipped with a CANopen interface or with 4…20mA or 0…10V analog outputs. These are considered as the standard interfaces in mobile automation and also in other industries. An SSI interface is also available.
