Magnetic Encoders - Medium Resolution Incremental
The P9500 line of magnetic encoder offers resolutions up to 512 counts for every inch diameter of magnetic taget wheels. For applications where there are minimal packaging constraints, a P9500 magnetic encoder with a P58 series magnetic target wheel can deliver 1900 cycles per revolution on each of its quadrature channels.
An incremental magnetic encoder produces a series of square waves during rotary or linear movement. The number of square waves produced per rotary turn or given linear length is referred to as ‘resolution’.
Like other PAI Sensors, the magnetic/non-contact technology used in this sensor series provides superior reliability in harsh industrial environments that contain dust, smoke, or lubricants. Greases, oils, steam/chemical wash-downs, machining chips, cutting fluids and most common industrial solvents have no effect on performance. No special considerations are required for flexible couplings, dynamic seals or bearing limitations since this sensor does not require these additional components nor their associated cost additions. A thermo-plastic housing, fabricated to your specifications, can be made using engineering grade polymers to be resistant to chemical and thermal exposure.
