A generation of rotary encoders with IP 64 protection, absolute position-value formation, and functional safety come with a 35-mm diameter housing. Eight new rotary encoders round out Heidenhain’s 1000 Series. The 1000 Series is useful as single-encoder measurement feedback systems in safety-oriented applications. The safety-oriented position encoders provide two independently formed position values via a serial EnDat interface. They are certified to the EN ISO 13849, EN 61508 and EN 954-1 standard for performance level d, safety integrity level 2, and category 3, respectively. The EnDat 2.2 version of these absolute rotary encoders with serial data transfer offers a singleturn resolution of 23 bits, and a multiturn resolution of 12 bits. Supply voltage ranges from 3.6 to 14 V.
