News release:  World’s first 13-bit magnetic rotary encoder

Renishaw offers a wide range of magnetic and compact optical position feedback encoder systems to meet the diverse requirements of industrial automation. The latest additions to the range include the world’s first 13-bit magnetic sensor, which is sealed for operation in harsh environments, including wash-down areas.

The range of reliable, low-cost, high-speed, miniature magnetic rotary encoders already provides class-leading performance along with ruggedness and durability. Now the addition of a 13-bit magnetic sensor, provides 8,192-count positioning resolution and operating speeds to over 30,000 rev/min, with availability in chip, chip-on-board, and ready-to-mount packaged versions. The enclosed versions, with sealing to IP68, are particularly suited for use in wash-down areas, whilst optional stainless steel housings meet food industry requirements.
