Gearless Absolute Encoders Spurn Magnetic Influence

Designed without gears to eliminate wear and sensitivity to magnetic fields, the Kübler by TURCK F36 optical encoder series features a compact size of only 36 mm with a hollow-shaft diameter of up to 10 mm, making them well suited for drive engineering and medical applications. The F36 single-turn encoders have a resolution of up to 17 bits; multi-turn encoders have a resolution of up to 41 bits with over 16 million revolutions. An IP-67 protection rating and a temperature range of -40 to 90°C ensure the encoders are able to withstand harsh environmental conditions. The encoders use the company’s OptoASIC technology with high integration density that results in fewer components and connection points, increasing operational reliability. They also offer a proprietary bearing structure that enhances their ability to withstand vibration and eliminates installation errors. TURCK, Minneapolis, MN. (800) 544-7769.
