Heavy-Duty Encoders

Rotary encoders are used in a range of industrial applications, from speed monitoring on conveyor systems to position control on automated handling machines. Industrial-rated encoders function effectively in rotational monitoring applications including motors, drives, automated process machines, robots, and elevators. However, these devices are more likely to fail when placed in operating environments that subject them to aggressive contaminants, impact, high shock and vibration, long-term submersion in liquids, intensive cleaning procedures, or EMI noise...
