Celesco Transducer Products'
CS15 Incremental Optical Encoder is a compact "size-15" servo-mount
encoder and is 1.5 inches in diameter, less than one inch in height and offers
four different resolution options from 100 to 2500 pulses per turn. It is a
solution for OEM and single-piece user alike. The CS15 provides rotary position
and velocity information to operate motion control and robotic systems. Each
encoder ships with opto-asic circuitry designed to provide a clean, reliable
quadrature output signal to most PLC or electrical interface. Precision ball
bearings support a durable stainless steel shaft to help ensure this durability
and long life. Environmental suitability is IP50 and it can be operated at
temperatures from 0 to 185F.
Other standard features of the CS15 include:
mm dia. shaft
resolution options: 100, 1000, 2000 and 2500 pulses per turn
OEMs and single piece users
output channels for single-ended or differential output connection
