Characterized by their compact size, high performance and robust design, F36 encoders are ideal for medical technology or drive engineering applications.

The F36 series is the first on the market to offer optical multiturn encoders without gears, making them completely insensitive to magnetic fields. The encoders feature a hollow shaft diameter up to 10 mm, with the device itself measuring only 36 mm in diameter. Despite this compact design, the F36 series is IP67 rated and has a wide temperature range of -30 to 85°C. Leveraging OptoASIC technology, F36 encoders reach a high resolution of up to 16 bits for singleturn applications; multiturn versions deliver a resolution of up to 32 bits.
