Incremental rotation coders
Accessories for encoders
- Angle bracket for easy, fast, and inexpensive installation
- Accessories for precise belt speed and linear measurement
- Couplings for clearance-free transmission of rotary movements

Angle brackets ensure simple, rapid and inexpensive mounting of encoders. Couplings and bearings for encoders ensure backlash-free rotation transmission, are vibration-isolating and compensate alignment errors.
If it is not possible to install the encoder at the drive train to detect the speed of a conveyor belt because the slip occurring at the belt causes measuring errors, a measuring wheel can be installed to provide speed feedback directly at the conveyor.

encoders
- Designs to proven industrial standard
- Compact and robust housing
- Hollow shaft encoder for direct mounting on actuators
- Versions with integrated fieldbus interface
- Cable entry for axial and radial use

In many manufacturing and production processes, in mobile machines and in the area of renewable energies encoders have become established as reliable instruments to ensure precise positioning. They convert rotary movement into digital signals. Encoders use the wear-free photoelectric or magnetic detection. A pulse disc firmly attached to the shaft or a movable magnet carrier ensures this detection.
A distinction is made between incremental and absolute encoders.
Incremental encoders generate a precisely defined number of pulses per revolution. They are a measure of the angular or linear distance moved.
Absolute encoders provide an absolute numerical value for each angular position even over several revolutions.

Incremental rotation coders
- Encoder for precise position determination and linear measurement
- Inclination sensors for precise measurement of angles of inclination on X and Y axes
- High measurement accuracy across the total angular range in two axes
- High protection rating for the requirements of harsh industrial environments

In many industrial applications it is necessary to monitor drives for rotational speed or standstill, measure speeds, frequencies, distances, angles or positions and display, process and transmit current process values. In the materials handling and wood industry, encoders have become established as reliable instruments for position and linear measurement.
Often the horizontal alignment of machines or machine parts is an important requirement for reliable operation. Inclination sensors are used for reliable angular position detection on working platforms or levelling of mobile cranes or excavators. Industrial applications include solar panel tracking systems. The sensors can be configured via IO-Link, using, for example, a USB interface. The LINERECORDER SENSOR software is used to visualise, transfer and archive parameter sets.
