Netzer Introduces Absolute Encoder for Harsh Environments
November 25, 2020—
Netzer encoders feature a low profile, hollow shaft, high resolution and very low weight.
The VLX-60 is a new member of the VLX series of Electric Encoders, a product line based on Netzer Precision Motion Sensor proprietary technology.
The holistic structure of the Electric Encoder makes it unique: Its output reading is the averaged outcome of the entire area of the rotor. This feature allows the EE a tolerant mechanical mounting and to deliver outstanding precision.
Due to the absence of components such as ball bearings, flexible couplers, glass discs, light sources and detectors along with very low power consumption enables the EE to deliver virtually failure-free performance in nearly all types of conditions.
The internally shielded, DC- operated EE includes an electric field generator, a field receiver, sinusoidal-shaped dielectric rotor, and processing electronics.
The EE output is a digital serial synchronous with absolute position single turn.
This combination of high precision, low profile and, low weight has made Netzer Precision encoders highly reliable and particularly well suited to a wide variety of industrial automation applications.
