Encoders for harsh environments

March 1, 2010





The Sendix M3658 shaft and M3678 hollow-shaft encoders incorporate patented Sensor Protect and Safety-Lockplus technologies to withstand harsh environmental conditions common in CANopen and SAE J1939 applications. The encoders provide a resolution of up to 14 bits and a non-contact, wear-resistant measuring system. With a temperature range from -40 to 85° C and resistance to humidity, the encoders are equipped to withstand wide temperature fluctuations. A two-color LED located on the rear of the housing indicates safe operation or fault status, as well as internal diagnostic status.
