The challenge in the drive industry is to develop increasingly compact drives …
… which must have ever-higher performance, better dynamics and improved energy efficiency. This leads to new requirements for encoders, too … with accuracy, robustness and reliability as well as compactness. To allow designing more compact drives, the encoder solution must be adapted accordingly. More after the jump.
So Kübler developed a totally new product — the Sendix F5883 in the Motor-Line version. An optical hollow shaft encoder with a mounting depth of only 43 mm. Compared with the multiturn encoder Sendix 5883 equipped with mechanical gear, this new version allows saving 27 mm. This is a milestone in an industry that has to house its components in the smallest spaces. It opens up new possibilities when dimensioning the geared motor and installing the encoder in tight mounting spaces.
The Sendix F5883 in the Motor-Line version is based on the mature Sendix platform, which stands for robustness and reliability. Due to the Intelligent-Scan technology, this totally optical encoder is highly accurate and 100% insensitive to magnetic fields. This encoder also has excellent EMC characteristics.
The wide range of interfaces — including SSI, BiSS, SinCos, RS422 and Push-Pull — allow flexible connection to frequency converters.
Thanks to its robust bearing structure in Safety-Lock design, this encoder is particularly resistant to installation errors, shocks and vibrations.
The encoder comes with a through hollow shaft of up to 15 mm and clamping on the A and on the B side — so it is suitable for all usual geared motor drive shafts.
The reduced installation depth of 43 mm, combined with a tangential cable outlet, makes the encoder easy to install in tight mounting spaces, and therefore the optimal solution for compact integration. Because it has a similar installation depth as an incremental encoder, the F5883 Motor-Line will continue to contribute to the widespread use of multiturn encoders in the geared motor industry.
