All about Contactless Encoders

A contactless rotary encoder is designed especially to meet the requirements of harsh operating conditions. Contactless encoders are applied in heavy-duty position sensing applications. They are usually applied in industries such as construction, utility vehicles, military, agriculture, marine operations and equipment, and power-generating plants.

Contactless encoders, along with other encoder models available from Netzer Precision, have distinct advantages that make them a cut above the rest of traditional brands of optical and magnetic encoders. This includes the fact that it has no bearings, just a hollow, floating shaft and requires very low power consumption. There are no ball bearings, couplers, a glass disc, light sources, and detectors in the design of non-contact encoders. These features result in immunity from interferences such as extreme shaking, as well as extreme temperature and the presence of a magnetic field. As a result, the system has a wear-free design and is virtually failure free.

Some of the other advantages of Netzer Precision contactless encoders are its generous mounting tolerances, very low weight, inertia, and profile, a wide variety of position feedback protocols, and ultra-high speed options. Perhaps one of its more satisfying features of contactless absolute encoders from Netzer Precision, especially for different businesses, is its high customizability. Although there are standard models available, customization can be done as well.
