The RM08 is a compact, super small high-speed rotary magnetic encoder designed for use in harsh environments. The noncontact two part design removes the need for seals or bearings ensuring longterm reliability and simple installation.
The encoder consists of a magnetic actuator and a separate encoder body. Rotation of the magnetic actuator is sensed by a custom encoder chip within the body, and processed to give incremental, SSI or linear voltage outputs.
The encoder chip processes the signals received to provide resolutions to 12 bit (4,096 counts per revolution) with high operational speeds. The compact encoder body is just 8 mm in diameter and provides dirt immunity up to IP68.
The RM08 encoder has been designed for direct integration to high volume OEM applications and can be used in a wide range of applications including motor control and industrial automation.
