announces that the KÃ¼bler by TURCK 2430 shaft and 2440 hollow shaft miniature encoders are now available in
absolute versions. The encoders boast a 24-mm diameter housing that makes them
ideal for space-restricted areas, with a non-contact design that minimizes wear
- delivering exceptional ruggedness in a compact package.
than determining encoder position based upon the home position, as incremental
varieties do, 2430 and 2440 absolute encoders assign a unique output for each
position. With this design, the encoders retain specific position data, even if
equipment power is turned off.
2430 and 2440 miniature encoders deliver a maximum speed rating of 12,000 RPM,
plus an extensive temperature range of -20 to 85C to suit diverse plant
environments. With radial and axial cable outlet options, these compact
encoders demonstrate even further applicability in tight spaces.
