Hengstler ICURO RI36 Incremental Encoders

Hengstler ICURO RI36 Incremental Encoders encoders for industrial applications featuring up to 3600 lines and high dependability. Thanks to its high ingress protection rating of IP64, this encoder is suitable for use in e.g. machine tools, robots, special-purpose machinery, and high-speed spoolers.

Hengstler offers a wide range of incremental and absolute encoders that provide reliable performance in challenging environments such as construction machinery, CNC machining, oil and gas, agriculture, mining, and more.

More than just a protocol, SCS Open Link provides a long-term platform for your Industry 4.0 roadmap, reduce time to market, create new revenue streams, and helps our customers build solutions for the factory of tomorrow.

From cost-aware standard types to extremely robust heavy-duty products, HENGSTLER can supply the right incremental rotary encoder for every application. With optical incremental rotary encoders, a line-coded disc made of metal, plastic or glass and mounted on a rotary bearing interrupts a beam of light from a light-emitting diode.

The number of lines determines the resolution, i.e. the number of measured points in one revolution. The interruptions of the light beam are sensed by the receptor element and electronically processed. The information is then made available as a rectangular signal at the encoder output. HENGSTLER can provide rotary encoders with up to 10,000 pulses per revolution.
