Pepperl+Fuchs Incremental Encoders: perfect for linear measurement


Pepperl+Fuchs is a world known producer of wide line of different measuring equipment for many fields of industries. Today the company is known in the whole world as a pioneer and innovator in the area of explosion protection and sensor technologies. The assortment of sensors for industrial automation differs by the high degree of innovations. It includes capacitive, inductive, photoelectric, ultrasonic and magnetic sensors. Here are components such as encoders, identification and positioning systems (Data Matrix, RFID, barcodes), devices of AS-interface, and also suitable for them accessories. Systems industrial image processing and machine vision sensors close a wide specter of products.

Pepperl+Fuchs encoders 

Pepperl+Fuchs encoders can be used wherever it is necessary to determine such parameters as frequency, speed, acceleration and direction of rotation. The sensors of such type can be used in the most different industries, including mechanical engineering, manufacture of conveyors and material handling equipment or packing industry.

Pepperl Fuchs produce the wide nomenclature of encoders, among which it is always possible to find suitable for any industry. In automation encoders are used to measure the angle, rotation, velocity, and acceleration of rotation. Linear motion also can be measured by using spindles, gear racks, measuring wheels or cable mechanisms.

Rotary Encoders convert rotational motion into electrical signals that are processed by counters, tachometers, controllers or computers.

The company offers absolute and incremental rotary encoders with accessories and cable pulls.

Incremental Rotary Encoders

Incremental encoders induce only move when driving. They generate output pulses which are counted by the reversible counter therefore, their meter readings correspond to how far the disk has moved from the start. Here basically are used two sensitive elements, located in the transducers so that their outputs are shifted relative to each other by 90° on a phase. In this case it is possible to use special logic to determine the direction and therefore to determine up or down should be considered counter.

Varieties of encoders

There are available different types of shaft:

  • solid; 
  • hollow; 
  • recessed hollow shaft; 
  • non-contact and others

Output types can be RS 422, Push-Pull, NAMUR or Sinus-Casinos.
And diameters of housing are available in variants 40, 50, 58, 70, 78, 90, 119 mm and also rectangular type.

Eltra Trade Company can supply any type of incremental or absolute rotary encoders of Pepperl+Fuchs in short terms and at the best prices!
