Overview

The RM36 is a high-speed magnetic rotary encoder designed for use in harsh industrial environments. The non-contact two part design removes the need for seals or bearings ensuring long-term reliability and simple installation.

The compact encoder body is just 36 mm in diameter and provides dirt immunity to IP68. The RM36 can be used in a wide range of applications including marine, medical, print, converting, industrial automation, metal working, motor control and instrumentation.

Features
