Please note that this product is an accessory. In the "Products" section you will find the corresponding encoders that you can order for your selected article.
The linear movement of a 2000 mm long, flexible high strength steel measuring cable is converted into a rotational movement by a measuring drum. The measuring drum, which has a circumference of 102.4 mm, is coupled to the shaft of the encoder. A change of displacement in the measuring cable then corresponds to a change in angle on the shaft of the angle encoder. The restoring force of a spiral spring holds the measuring cable tight and prevents errors due to slackness. The cable is wound with adjacent turns in a reproducible manner on the drum due to the movement of the drum on a spindle.
