POSITAL has extended is portfolio of rotary encoders with a new family of through-hollow incremental encoders. These devices are designed to be installed with the machine shaft passing through the sensor. They can be used to monitor rotary motion in a wide variety of machinery, including servomotors, material handling equipment and printing presses, offering cost-effective, space-saving solutions. For motors, they can be easily installed between the body of the motor and other components mounted on the shaft.
POSITAL’s through-hollow encoders are available for shaft diameters ranging from 3/8 in. (9.5 mm) to 1-3/4 in. (44.5 mm). The smaller units (up to 14 mm shaft opening) have an external diameter of 2-1/4 in. (58 mm), while the larger units (5/8 in. to 1-3/4 in. shaft size) have external diameters of 3 or 4 in. (77 or 100 mm). Available resolutions for these devices extend from 360 PPR to 4,096 PPR (pulses per revolution.)
All through-hollow encoders have rugged aluminum housings and environmental protection rated at IP65, ensuring longevity and high levels of operational safety. All variants are available with a variety of communications interfaces, including RS422 (TTL) 5 V or 11-30 V and Push-Pull (HTL, 5-30 V). Connection options include built-in cables or MIL-type connectors.
POSITAL’s through-hollow encoders are a good option for machine builders and system integrators who are looking for accurate motion feedback devices that are easy to build into new or existing designs.
