The RE36 is a high-speed rotary magnetic encoder designed for use in harsh environments. The traditional design allows for easy integration to existing machines.
A magnet is mounted to the shaft within the encoder body. Rotation of this magnet is sensed by a custom encoder chip within the body, and processed to give the required output format.
The encoder chip processes the signals received to provide resolutions to 13 bit (8192 positions per revolution) with operational speeds to 20,000 rpm. Resolution options include binary and decimal. Output signals are provided in industry standard absolute, incremental or analogue formats.
The compact encoder body is just 36 mm in diameter and provides dirt immunity to IP68. The RE36 can be used in a wide range of applications including marine, medical, print, converting, industrial automation, metal working and instrumentation.
