The encoders boast a 24mm diameter housing that suits them well for space-restricted areas, with a non-contact design that minimizes wear—delivering exceptional ruggedness in a compact package, says the vendor. Rather than determining encoder position based upon the home position, as incremental varieties do, 2430 and 2440 absolute encoders assign a unique output for each position. With this design, the encoders retain specific position data, even if equipment power is turned off. All 2430 and 2440 miniature encoders deliver a maximum speed rating of 12,000RPM, plus a temperature range of -20ºC to 85ºC.
