TURCK has announced that the Kübler by TURCK 2430 shaft and 2440 hollow shaft miniature encoders are now available in absolute versions. The encoders boast a 24-mm diameter housing that makes them suited for space-restricted areas, with a non-contact design to minimize wear.
Rather than determining encoder position based upon the home position, as incremental varieties do, 2430 and 2440 absolute encoders assign a unique output for each position. With this design, the encoders retain specific position data, even if equipment power is turned off.
All 2430 and 2440 miniature encoders deliver a maximum speed rating of 12,000 RPM, plus a temperature range of -20 to 85ºC. With radial and axial cable outlet options, these compact encoders applicable for tight spaces.
