Magnetic encoder

The Vert-X 51 Series of rotary magnetic encoders feature 12, 14, or 16-bit resolution and repeatability to 0.36° or ±0.1°, depending on the model. The encoder has a measurement range 0 to 360°. Suited to harsh environments with ingress protection to IP67, the encoders withstand shock up to 50 gs, vibration to 20 gs, and have an operating and storage temperature range of –40 to 125°C. MTBF is 135+ years.

Ten output options are available including 0.1 to 10 V, 0.5 to 4.5 V, 4 to 20 mA, CANopen, PWM, and SPI. The Series is available with up to two TTL switch outputs and some are programmable with CW/CCW sense of rotation, start and end points, custom characteristic curve, switches, and index point.
