Part no.: MR344 Hollow Shaft Incremental Fiber Optic Encoder
• 100% passive sensing design no electronics whatsoever
• Up to 1.25" through hollow design
• Sensor can be installed in all manner of hazardous locations and potentially explosive atmospheres
• Immune to EMI and RFI
The MR341 Mini Rotary Encoder is a Size 11, small form factor incremental encoder offering resolution to 512ppr. It is inter-mountable with resolvers, synchros and conventional electronic-based encoders of the same size. The MR341 Encoder is a 100% passive sensor which operates entirely in the optical domain. The sensor provides immunity to any electro-magnetic interferences such as lightning, radiation, magnetic fields and other harsh environment conditions. The innovative design provides 100% electrical isolation as well as immunity to high voltages ideal for harsh environment applications such as feedback for welding robots, measuring anode position in smelters, and monitoring pantograph operation in electric rail applications.

SSI hardware is fairly simple. Just use any RS-422 transceiver to generate the differential signals from/to the microcontroller port pins. Keep reading to learn about the different implementations of SSI hardware.
If your environment is dirty, hot, wet, or corrosive your requirements may have some similarities with that of the construction industry.
Miniature Kit Encoders Ensure High Performance in Maxon Micromotors
With the increasing sophistication of electronic controls for mechanical systems, there is more demand for durable, accurate and easy to use displacement sensors. As automation becomes more common there is also an increasing sensitivity to price. Customers also want sensors that can be easily connected and mechanically integrated.
While most modern rotary encoders rely on non-contact sensing technologies and have high MTBF specifications, in critical applications it is still common to have redundant sensors required. When selecting a solution, a number of different criteria need to be considered and fortunately different solutions exist, making the task less daunting. Redundancy One of the first […]
