New Linear Encoders with Rugged Die Cast Housing and Built-in LED for Set Up and Diagnostics

Kübler by TURCK announces a new line of linear encoders that supply A and B channels—plus a periodic index with the corresponding inverted channels. The T8.LI20 and T8.LI50 linear encoders are available with either with a push-pull output or an RS422 interface, and provide a voltage range from 4.8 to 30 VDC.

The linear encoders are used with magnetic bands that are attached to the mounting surface and protected by a stainless-steel cover. The encoder’s resolution is up to 5 μm with quadruple evaluation, and its repeat accuracy is +/- one increment with a measuring speed up to 82 feet per second, depending on the resolution.

Kübler by TURCK encoders use non-contact technology and can survive environments with high vibration (30g/10-2,000 Hz) and shock (500 g’s/1ms). The products can also be used outdoors, thanks to an IP 67 protection rating, wide temperature range and the weatherproof die-cast housing. The metal housing also offers improved shielding against electromagnetic interference.

A built-in LED provides a warning signal or an index pulse. Connections are made via a high-grade shielded PUR cable that is also suitable for cable track installations.
