RM44 rotary encoder with external zeoring

RM44 rotary encoder with external zeoring

More Views

The RM44 encoder-sensor base unit is designed for integration onto electric motors or other devices for shaft position and velocity measurement.

 

The RM44 with external zeroing is designed for setting the encoder zero position by using zero pen. It is designed for power supply voltage of 5 V only.

 

For electrical characteristics and dimensional drawings please refer to RM44 data sheet (RM44D01 see downloads).

 

Setting the zero position


1. Install the magnetic actuator and RM44 encoder.
Please refer to RM44 data sheet (RM44D01) for more information.
2. Set the mechanical zero position.
3. Use the zero pen to set the encoder zero position (see image): 
   3.1 Touch the Zero mark with the apex of the Zero pen - the status LED goes off.
   3.2 Hold the Zero pen for 3 seconds.
   3.3 The new Zero position is set when status LED goes RED.
