Electric Cylinders In-Line Encoder

In-Line Encoder is installed between the motor adapter and motor

For position sensing at the input shaft, the in-line encoder option may be factory installed between the motor and motor adapter or Right-Angle Reducer. This low-cost option requires minimal space. When used with worm gear type cylinders, it leaves the extension shaft side of the cylinder free for clearance, for a rotary limit switch, or for coupling to another cylinder.

The In-line encoder's quadrature output design allows detection of both speed and direction of shaft rotation.

The in-line encoder option mounts to a motor and therefore requires an optional motor mount or right-angle reducer.

Sensing Speed Range: 0 - 10,000 rpm
Pulse Output: 60 pules/revolution
Supply Voltage: +5 to 24 Volts DC +/-5%
Supply Current: 60 mA typical, 115 mA maximum
Output Drive Capability: 250 mA per channel continuous
Maximum Load: 50 ohms per channel

Encoder is face mounted between the motor and motor mount and will offset the length of the motor .61 inches for NEMA 56 and 140 frames and .88 inches for NEMA 180 and 210 frames. See Image 1 in Figure 1 Below for product.

How To Order An in-Line Encoder:

Specify the Cylinder reference number, using the system described on page 37 or 57. See Image 2 in Figure 1 Below for example and diagram.
