Zettlex expands IncOder range of high precision, inductive position encoders
15 March 2015
Zettlex has expanded its IncOder range of high precision, inductive position encoders. This latest generation features an enhanced 10kHz read rate for high speed applications and the option of a 0-5V analogue output for legacy systems.
There are also three new size options, extending the range to cover diameters from 37mm to 300mm.
Zettlex IncOders are high precision, inductive encoders aimed at the high reliability measurement of angle or angular velocity in harsh conditions. With an increased read rate up to 10kHz, the latest generation IncOder is ideally suited to motor encoder and motion control applications such as robotics, machine tools and digital printing.
The extended range includes new 37mm and 58mm compact versions for applications in gimbals, electro-optics and mechatronics systems. There is also a new 300mm unit which is ideally suited for use with test and calibration equipment where either high precision or a large bore is required.
To address the needs of customers looking to upgrade their potentiometer based legacy systems to a non-contact maintenance free solution, the IncOder with optional 0-5V analogue output provides the perfect solution.
“We are continuing to expand our highly successful IncOder range to meet customer demand for units suitable for an even wider range of challenging applications,” said Mark Howard, general manager, Zettlex. “These latest innovations increase the number of available IncOder options from 4 to 8 million!"
With their non-contacting design, Zettlex IncOders are ideally suited to harsh conditions – for example where there is condensation or dust, where potentiometers, optical or capacitive devices may prove unreliable.
There are no delicate or wearing parts, removing the need for periodic replacement, service or maintenance. They are generally unaffected by foreign matter and IP67 rated versions are available. Robust, hard-anodised aluminium alloy housings and monolithic constructions are used throughout.
