Rotary encoders from RENCO
RENCO’s product program currently includes the R35i and R35iL rotary encoders without integral bearing. They use the optical scanning principle and offer the greatest possible functionality while featuring the smallest possible dimensions, thanks in large part to their simple and self-centering installation method with the patented slide-lock mechanism.
The new R35i and R35iL encoders from RENCO are incremental rotary encoders without integral bearings. With resolutions of up to 40 000 measuring steps per revolution, they are particularly well suited as feedback systems for stepper motors in Closed Loop operation and for exact position measurement in measuring machines such as laser scanners. For particularly limited mounting situations, RENCO offers the R35iL. It is one of the smallest rotary encoders currently on the market, with a height of only 8.6 mm.
Their strengths are:
- Simple and quick mounting thanks to the integrated mounting aid
- Electronic adjustment of the motor commutation signals at the press of a button
- Safe and reliable operation thanks to monitoring and diagnostic functions, implemented in this manner in incremental rotary encoders for the first time
- Exact measurement of the rotor position of BLDC motors and highly accurate commanding of the UVW track sequence for electronic motor commutation on motors with up to 32 motor pole pairs
HEIDENHAIN produces the RENCO rotary encoders, and also sells them worldwide. This means that RENCO rotary encoders benefit from HEIDENHAIN’s comprehensive know-how in the development and production of encoders. HEIDENHAIN develops and manufactures linear and angle encoders, rotary encoders, digital readouts and numerical controls for demanding positioning tasks.
