Netzer’s VLP-60 two-plate ring encoder designed for harsh environments.

Netzer introduced its lightweight VLP-60 encoder, which featuring an open frame, two-plate design, and is tolerant to temperature, shock, EMI, RFI and magnetic fields. Based on the company’s proprietary technology, the ring encoder features no-contact elements, a <6 mm profile, digital interfaces and an auto calibration option. The encoder’s output reading is the averaged outcome of the entire area of the rotor. The output is a digital serial synchronous with absolute position single turn. Due to the absence of ball bearings, flexible couplers, glass discs, light sources and detectors along with very low power consumption enables the EE to deliver virtually failure-free performance in nearly all types of conditions, the company says.
