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 customization, with various board and magnet sizes to suit your application.

Features

  • 14 bit resolution
  • Multi-turn counter option
  • Status LED
  • BiSS-C, SSI, SPI, Asynchronous serial and PWM communication

Benefits

  • True absolute encoder
  • Through-hole design enables its mounting anywhere along the shaft 
  • Optional self-calibration after assembly
  • Wide installation tolerances
  • Built-in self-diagnostics
  • Resistance to chemicals
  • High speed operation
