HEIDENHAIN’s new PressFit rotary encoders let small-motor manufacturers easily incorporate feedback devices into their designs. The new ExI 11xx encoder series features a unique compact design that allows fast and simple mounting by press-fitting into a motor housing while still allowing surrounding space for cables and seals. HEIDENHAIN’s PressFit encoders are made for integration into motors with a flange size as small as 40 x 40 mm or an axis height of only 20 mm.
Developed in collaboration with global motor manufacturers, HEIDENHAIN’s new PressFit encoders include a “PressFit” flange that can be secured in a motor housing through a frictional connection, using a specially designed tolerance sleeve. This innovative system promises to support automation efforts by easing mounting requirements, leading to less mounting time being required.
The new PressFit ExI 11xx encoders feature these benefits:
- Automatable mounting
- Faster installation
- Wide mounting tolerances
- Compact design
- EnDat 2.2 purely serial interface
- Functional Safety capability
