Fiber optic rotary encoder

The TD5207 non-metallic fiber-optic rotary encoder operates in extreme electromagnetic fields in industrial process plants. In operation, the sensor connects to an MR310 Remote Encoder Interface Module via a simplex fiber link. The interface module directly provides conventional digital/analog position and speed feedback signals for the motion control system %%MDASSML%% typically hydraulic or pneumatic in these applications. The basic encoder offers 200-ppr resolution in a 3-inch square flange housing. Other packages and performance options are also available.
