IncOder™ is a range of non-contact inductive angle encoders for precision angular sensing in harsh environments. IncOder™ Shaft Encoders are available in a variety of sizes, with many mechanical, electrical, resolution and connection options.
Whereas optical or capacitive sensors can be unreliable in harsh conditions – notably with condensation or dust – IncOder™ Shaft Encoders are generally unaffected by foreign matter and IP67-rated versions are available. Unlike capacitive devices, there is no need to earth the housing or shaft. Robust, aluminium alloy housings with a corrosion-protected finish, a stainless-steel shaft and high-quality materials are used throughout.
IncOder™ Shaft Encoders contain all the electronics to receive power and output a signal. The output signal shows the position of the shaft relative to the IncOder’s housing. Devices with absolute digital outputs, such as SSI, SPI etc., are truly absolute which means they need no motion at power-up to determine position. Alternatively, there is the option of A/B pulse output for incremental measurement. IncOders have a solid track record in demanding applications such as industrial machinery, security and defence equipment, and naval/marine equipment.
