Overview

Orbis™ is an absolute, through-hole rotary encoder suitable for applications where a typical OnAxis encoder cannot be mounted at the end of the rotating shaft due to space constraints.

Orbis™ through-hole measuring principle allows customisation, with various board and magnet sizes to suit your application.

Battery powered multiturn counter allows encoder to count shaft rotations even when main power is not available.

Features

  • Multiturn counter powered by battery
  • Extended temperature range
  • Reduced effect of thermal drift on accuracy
