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.
Industrial workplaces are governed by OSHA rules, but this isn’t to say that rules are always followed. While injuries happen on production floors for a variety of reasons, of the top 10 OSHA rules that are most often ignored in industrial settings, two directly involve machine design: lockout/tagout procedures (LO/TO) and machine guarding.
