Rotary Encoders

Rotary Encoders

Hi there,

We are looking at using a low profile encoder for use on a product that needs IPX1 certification and resistance to water ingress from spill testing.

ELMA make a Type E33 that seems to be good.  

Does anyone know of other companies that do ones with internal o-ring sealing?  

These are good because you can seal up against the stationary part of the shaft (you don't need to worry about water ingress through the shaft because of the o-ring).



RE: Rotary Encoders

Check with "Kubler" Turck they offer Incremental, Absolute and Linear encoders to IP 66 rated housing.
