December 29, 2009—Heidenhain Corporation's 1000 Series rotary encoders offer IP 64 protection, absolute position-value formation and functional safety in a 35 mm diameter housing size. These encoders are designed for single-encoder measurement feedback systems in safety-oriented applications.

The 1000 Series encoders with functional safety produce two independently formed position values by means of a serial EnDat interface. They meet EN ISO 13849, EN 61508 and EN 954-1 standards for performance level d, safety integrity level two and category three, respectively. The EnDat 2.2 version with serial data transfer provides a singleturn resolution of 23 bits and a multiturn resolution of 12 bits. Supply voltage ranges from 3.6 to 14 volts. The 1000 Series is made up of eight rotary encoders.
