Typically used in factory applications such as material handling, conveyors systems, process control and Web control, Kübler by TURCK incremental encoders have speed ratings up to 12,000 rpm and frequency responses up to 300 kHz. The units use an eight-pin M12 eurofast connector designed specifically for the encoder. As part of the E-WKC 8T-PX3-930-* cordset, the translucent molded right-angle connector houses three LEDs that indicate channels A, B and Z. The cordset uses a rugged, PVC flexlife cable designed to withstand more than 2 million flex cycles.
