Low Profile Encoders

Low Profile Encoders

Heidenhain Corp.'s low profile incremental rotary encoders with block commutation tracks, are suitable for use in small-dimensioned servo motors. These new rotary encoders of the Heidenhain 1000 and 1100 series come equipped with a 35 mm housing diameter.

The encoders are short in overall length, but also by their opto-ASIC based photoelectric scanning with integrated interpolation. The electrical output is at TTL levels with differential signals. These encoders can be connected to most standard subsequent electronics for control of digitally controlled servo motors (up to edge lengths of 40 and 55 mm).

The Heidenhain 1023 encoder has an overall length of 35.2 mm max and an IP 64 rating, making it useful in hazardous environments; the Heidenhain 1123 encoder has an overall length of 30.3 mm max and an IP 0 for general use.

Both encoders have mounted stator couplings and blind hollow shafts. Choice of appropriate commutation signals is available to the buyer as the amount depends upon the number of poles of the motor to be controlled.
