Hollow Shaft Kit Encoders for Position Control Applications
POSITAL’s new hollow shaft kit encoders are designed for installations where it is useful to have a rotary position measuring element (encoder) fit around a machine’s shaft or axle. With their generous center openings (30 or 50 mm) and available multiturn measurement range, these are an excellent solution for many installations, including servomotors, feedback-controlled stepper motors and robot joints. These devices are based on an advanced capacitive measurement technology that combines accuracy, reasonable installation tolerances and rugged reliability. They also feature self-powered rotation counters that eliminate the need for backup batteries and significantly reduce maintenance costs.
