The IXARC rotary encoders now include housings that are only 27 mm long. This reduced length, combined with a diameter of only 36 mm, means that these super-compact devices are ideal for tight spaces. The radial cable entry and shaft seal have protection ratings of IP65, ensuring reliable operations under wet and dirty conditions.
A wide variety of flange and shaft configurations are available, reducing the need for costly adapters or workarounds. Incremental variants are programmable: Resolution can be set anywhere from one to 16,384 pulses-per-turn in software without requiring any changes to the mechanical properties of the devices. Similarly, pulse direction and the output driver—either Push-Pull (HTL) or RS422 (TTL)—can be reset through software updates.
