Pepperl+Fuchs compact multiturn encoders features accuracies up to 0.1 degrees.

14-Nov-Pepperl_magnetic_encoders-625Pepperl+Fuchs introduced its ENA58IL and ENA36IL magnetic absolute rotary encoders that combine precision and high-speed resolution in a compact design. The encoders feature accuracies up to 0.1°, resolution up to 16 bit single turn and 32 bit multiturn, and a signal processing time < 100 µs. In addition to two-axis 14-bit Hall sensors, the units also house a Wiegand sensor, turning them into multiturn absolute rotary encoders without mechanical gears. As result, the compact encoders feature housings as small as 36 millimeters in diameter. The ENA58IL and ENA36IL are also suitable the most adverse applications such as offshore wind turbines or in the mobile equipment industry.
