Extreme-service encoders

RLS miniature magnetic rotary encoders include a small diametrically polarized magnet and custom ASIC, which contains an array of Hall effect sensors that generate a voltage when exposed to a magnetic flux field.

Features & benefits

  • Withstand shock, vibration, pressure, temperature extremes, high speed, and immersion

  • Resolution to 8,192 counts per revolution, speeds to more than 30,000 rpm, and measurement accuracy to 0.5°

  • Temperature range from -40° to 125° C

  • Available in 7 to 13-bit models with absolute, incremental, or linear output; 5 or 24 V supply voltage

Dual output encoders

HS35 encoders are designed for use as winch-turn counters in the drawworks systems of oil rigs.

Features & benefits

  • Hard-anodized metal housing, sealed connector, IS rating, dual bearings, and shaft seals for NEMA 4 and 13 (IP65) ratings

  • Supply simultaneous position feedback to two separate systems from a single encoder

  • Outputs can have different resolutions with use of interpolation; saves cost and space of a second encoder
