Hengstler heavy duty absolute rotary encoders are designed for the toughest, extreme or harsh duty applications. They are available with a 58mm diameter aluminium or stainless steel housing. Choose between 9.52mm or 10mm shaft diameters, square or synchro flange, cable or an M12 connecting plug. These encoders are capable of withstanding 300 N of axial or radial shaft loading and can easily achieve a mechanical life of 109 rotations with a permanent radial and axial load of 200 N. Heavy duty absolute encoders will operate within a wide temperature range of -40°C to 100°C. Each encoder is designed with a unique labyrinth sealed housing offering a protection class of up to IP69K (Submersible) ensuring quality and reliability. Single turn and multi-turn encoders can be produced with a choice of output options, such as SSI, BiSS and CANopen, alternatively, analogue 4-20 mA or 0-10 V can be supplied. Heavy duty rotary shaft encoders are RoHS compliant, UL approved and CE marked. Typical examples of use are wind farms, marine, construction, trucks, utility vehicles, offshore or solar plants, food and beverage applications and many more.
