Rotary Motion Encoder

The MagRes Absolute Singleturn CAM Encoder is a rotary motion encoder that acts as a programmable limit switch, replacing costly PLC or PC controllers for positioning applications in access control, automated assembly, medical equipment, and heavy machinery.

Users can easily program the unit, including process speeds and start, end, and change points. The encoder handles speeds up to 1,500 rpm and sports a rugged industrial aluminum housing.
