Encoder Withstands Harsh Environments

June 4, 2010
The vendor’s encoder line has been expanded to include the Sendix 5006 2-in. incremental encoder, featuring a completely stainless steel housing and Viton seals. 

This incremental encoder can handle temperature fluctuations from -40°C to 85°C, and is IP67 rated when sealed. It is available with ten pulse counts up to 5,000PPR and with push-pull or RS422 outputs. It incorporates a proprietary Safety-Lock bearing assembly that has been tested to provide additional protection against vibration and installation errors. The incremental encoder is well-suited for use in applications with corrosive environments or requiring long-term durability.
