New Mounting Bracket Fits Size 25 Programmable and Absolute Shaft Encoders
SAGLE, Idaho: Encoder Products Company (EPC) has introduced a new linear measurement solution: a bracket that fits all of EPC’s Size 25 Shaft Encoders with 2.5" flange mounts, including absolute and programmable encoders.
The bracket works with:
- The Model MA63S absolute encoder. With resolution up to 14 bits Single Turn and 39 bits Multi-Turn, the MA63S is available in either SSI or CANopen output.
- The Model 725I. In addition to the rated bearing load of 80 lbs, this fully isolated encoder-within-an-encoder uses an internal flexible mount and independent set of bearings to protect the encoder from the effects of severe axial and radial shaft loading.
- The programmable Model 25SP Accu-CoderPro™, which offers programmable output type, waveform, and resolution.
“This is a fantastic option when applications call for a robust linear measurement solution that requires absolute feedback or a programmable encoder,” explains Sarah Walter, Electrical Engineer and EPC Technical Sales Manager. “It solves the problem of trying to design and source or assemble a bracket, measuring wheel, and encoder. With this new bracket, you just order it with the Size 25 encoder and the measuring wheel you need for your application. It’s one streamlined system.”
EPC also offers a variety of measuring wheels designed specifically to fit the mounting bracket.
