Hollow bore incremental encoder
September 21, 2008 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
With bores sizes up to 0.625 inches, Quantum Devices’ QPhaseT QD200 has been designed to eliminate the assembly hassle and hidden cost of installing modular or kit encoders onto OEM products. Available through Electromate Industrial Sales, the QD200 is a complete operational unit with an integral dual ABEC 5, ball bearing, insert molded hollow shaft support that provides the mechanical stability for this low profile, high resolution encoder package. Using proprietary sensing technology, the encoder is able to obtain an incremental, 5000 PPR, plus Index pulse, without the use of interpolation schemes. The stainless steel flexible spring mount provides for 30 degree rotational adjustment to permit precise commutation alignment and has been designed to allow for more motor tail shaft run out than typical modular or kit type units can tolerate.
