Minneapolis, MN — TURCK introduces a new line of Kübler by TURCK robust magnetic linear encoders. Utilizing A and B output voltage channels plus a periodic index with the corresponding inverted channels, these encoders achieve high accuracy in a broad range of linear motion applications. The T8.LI20 and T8.LI50 linear encoders are available with either 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, due 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, allowing for simple set-up and diagnostics. Connections are made via a high-grade shielded PUR cable that is also suitable for cable track installations.
