Hengstler ICURO RI58 Incremental Encoder

The Hengstler ICURO RI58 Incremental Encoder is characterized by being particularly flexible. There are a number of different versions offering a range of flanges and connections.

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.

These encoders are suitable for high shock loads and feature high signal accuracy and up to 40,000 steps with 10,000 marks and are particularly well suited to use in machine tools, CNC axes, packaging machines, motors/drives, injection molding machines, and sawing machines.
