Rotary and Linear Optical, Magnetic, Absolute Encoders for Position and feedback control. Harsh, Heavy, Light duty and OEM Applications.

Encoder Mounting Configuations

Illustrating the various method of correct Incremental Magnetic and Absolute Encoder Mounting Configurations.

In all cases refer to relevant installation instruction and correct fit-up tolerances. The use of anti-backlash coupling for shaft to shaft coupling is advised.

Encoders are applied to measure speed and position in a wide variety of applications and are therefor available with numerous mounting styles. The mounting style should be selected carefully to best fit the application at hand.

Opkon Angle Sensors

OPKON’s core product has traditionally been Resistive Linear Position Transducers. These position sensors are commonly applied in plastic injection machinery, textile machines, transfer and hydraulic, metal forming machines and general automation applications. In the recent years, OPKON has started production of rotary magnetic encoders and linear magnetic incremental sensors, and Rotary potentiometers for Angle Measurement.

Signal outputs from 0-5vdc  over a rotation angle of 45°, 90°, 180° or 360°, with IP Rating of IP-64.

Models are available in a male shaft version c/w Flexible coupling and Mounting bracket, or a Blind hollow shaft version with flexible tether mount.
