The measurement range of the Vert-X 51 Series is 0 to 360° and physical measurements of the housing are 30 x 50 mm. These encoders are ideal for harsh environments with ingress protection to IP 67 with stainless steel housing and shafts available.
The Vert-X 51 Series is designed to operate with shock up to 50 g and vibration to 20 g as well as axial and radial shaft loads to 45 N. Operating and storage temperature range is -40 to +125 °C. Product life is over 200 million movements and mean time to failure is up to 668 years, depending on the model.
Eight output options are available including 0.1 to 10 V, 0.5 to 4.5 V, 4 to 20 mA, SPI, CANopen/GL certified, PWM, and SPI. Versions with 5V or 24 V supplies as well as redundant outputs are also available. The encoders are also available with up to two TTL switch outputs and some versions are programmable with CW/CCW sense of rotation, start and end points, custom characteristic curve, switches and index point.
The encoders are ideal for marine propulsion, off-highway and other applications requiring certifications. In fact, the Vert-X 51 CANopen version is certified by four authorities including the American Bureau of Shipping.
