Encoder Products Company’s (EPC) new addition to their line of linear measurement solutions offers users a spring-loaded mounting bracket combined with a choice of measuring wheel. They then select the encoder to meet their exact application requirements.
With up to 10 lb of adjustable spring tension, this spring-loaded mounting bracket fits 2.5-in. shafted encoders with servo mounts, and 58-mm shafted encoders with clamping flanges. The bracket works with the following EPC encoders:
- Programmable incremental Model 25SP
- Model A58SE absolute encoder with either EtherCAT or PROFINET communication protocol
- Model A25SB absolute encoder with either CANopen or SSI communication protocol
Measuring wheels are available in urethane, knurled aluminum, hard anodized aluminum, or rubber insert.
“This new linear measurement solution gives customers the flexibility of programmable options with their encoders,” explains electrical engineer and EPC Technical Applications Manager Sarah Walter. “The Model 25SP, in conjunction with the PLMS-assembled-with-wheels USB Programming Module, allows them to program their encoder’s electronics. For incremental feedback, users can choose from 32 waveforms, select from three different output types, and program any resolution from 1 to 65,536 CPR.”
The optional angle-mounting bracket simplifies installation of the linear measurement solution. Designed specifically for EPC products, this bracket allows quick and easy mounting and installation, eliminating the need to design, machine, or source a mounting solution.
