Dec. 5, 2016 – Encoder Products Company (EPC) has introduced the model 25SP programmable encoder in a size 25 package (2.5 in. x 2.5 in., or 63.5 mm).
Using EPC’s optional programming module, users may select from six output types, choose from 32 different waveforms, and program any resolution from 1 to 65,536 CPR. These programming features allow a single encoder to be configured for multiple applications, enabling one encoder to replace many different part numbers, and providing cost savings on inventory and down-time replacement, says the company. The 25SP Accu-CoderPro boasts an industrial housing; it comes standard with dual bearings rated 80lbs axial or radial, so it can handle heavy-duty applications; and it can be specified with up to IP67 sealing for challenging environments. With a range of mounting options, shaft sizes, and connector types to choose from, the unit says it is “configurable enough to fit into almost any application.” According to EPC, the model is suitable for various applications including: conveyors, machine control, food processing, process control, robotics, material handling, and textile machines, and other motion control feedback applications.
