To meet the motor industry’s needs for a thin and reliable rotary encoder for tight spaces, Leine & Linde introduces the 700 Series. These encoders feature a thin design and a large hollow shaft of up to 25.4 mm which allows mounting them directly on a motor’s shaft without an intermediate adapter for shaft reduction.
Direct mount contributes to minimizing the overall build length on a motor, and at the same time facilitates mounting. The 700 series rotary encoders are compact and reliable. Despite their compactness, the encoders are for tough environments that use typical company products. Mechanically, they feature a dual set of heavy duty bearings and a well-encapsulated enclosure. Electronically, they are built for reliability in tough environments where they are subjected to vibrations and electrical disturbances.
To provide a best encoder for an application, the company offers a wide range of electrical interfaces to choose from such as TTL, 1VPP, HC HTL, HTL and RS422, each adapted to different frequencies, temperatures, and cable lengths. On the mechanical side, the developer offers many different shaft variants that cover the market’s standards for inch and millimeter-based dimensions.
