Associated Controls Elma Electronics has introduced new Mechanical incremental encoder, type E33. This new addition to the ELMA range is available with or without push button function and has compact housing dimensions of only 11.5 x 12.3 x 4.9 mm.
There are three different mounting options available: THT vertical, THT horizontal and SMT vertical, with or without threaded bushing.
The long-life indexing system provides up to 200,000 revolutions and features good indexing feel and high switching torque remain constant over the life of the encoder. This proprietary mechanism also ensures good tactile feedback.
The rugged, vibration and shockproof metal design with optional IP 67 front panel sealing is suitable for applications in all harsh environments.
The gold plated switching contacts offer high switching reliability even in tough environmental conditions with operating temperatures in the range of -40 to 85 °C.
The basic type E33 has 32 switching positions with 16 pulses per revolution per channel, 2 Ncm switching torque and 6 N push button actuation force. Other resolutions and operating forces are optionally available.
Different shaft shapes and lengths can be chosen as well. The modular system platform enables quick and easy implementation of customer specific requirements even in small quantities.
The E33 is setting new standards in the crowded market place of mechanical incremental encoders, as it boasts a unique combination of ruggedness, durability, precision engineering and customisation. The E33 is a cost effective choice for a broad range of applications from industrial automation to defence, where quality and reliability are required above all else.
