The compact Acuro XR absolute encoder (installed height just 32 mm) incorporates three design features that make it suitable for harsh environments. Magnetic technology is used rather than optical, oversized bearings handle high axial and radial shaft loads, and tight sealing around the shaft and housing resist liquid ingress. Using a magnetic field instead of 8664light to generate the electronic signal increases the encoder’s resistance to shock, vibration, and moisture. Special labyrinth seals around the shaft meet IP69K ratings. In addition to being submersible, the encoder’s protection rating means it’s compatible for use in hygienic food and beverage processing.
