Precision Potentiometers, Absolute Encoders, Rotary Encoders - Single and Multi-Turn
Industrial grade potentiometers with much more precise electrical and mechanical tolerances, significantly increased lifespan, higher reliability and component quality than conventional low-cost potentiometers. Single-turn and Multi-Turn. Wire-wound and conductive plastic. Bushing mount (sleeve bearing), servo mount (ball bearing) and hollow shaft models. Numerous electrical and mechanical options.
Absolute encoders are rotary encoders that measure angular positions in an application, convert this angular information into electrical signals and output them as absolute values. Excellent measuring results are provided by magnetic sensor technologies based on the Hall effect with the well-known advantage of the contactless measuring principle and a virtually unlimited sensor life. Thanks to the large selection of electrical output types, connections and mechanical designs, reliable, reproducible and accurate measurement data is provided for almost any application. The angular measuring range of an absolute encoder is of central importance. Single-turn encoders cover angular ranges up to 360 degrees and multi-turn encoders cover angles beyond that. Particularly worth mentioning is the possibility of programming customer-specific outputs.
Incremental encoders are used for precision measurement of high rotational speeds or angular velocities. Incremental encoders provide output signals in the form of pulses that are counted by an external evaluation unit. Our sensors are based on non-contact measuring principles such as opto-electronic and magnetic (Hall effect) sensor technology. Large selection of connections and mechanical designs.
