Balluff’s new magnetic discs for use with absolute rotary magnetic encoders allow for use in tight spaces with high precision and a low form factor.

The discs offer non-contact and wear-free measuring.

Balluff offers a diverse portfolio of standardized flat and hub-shaped discs to match a variety of configurations. Inside diameters as small as 3 mm and up to 70 mm are available.

Mechanical modifications can be created to meet specific application requirements.


Whether used with a complete system with sensor and electronics or integrated into a company’s electronics with the IC-MU encoder chip, this wide range of compact magnetic discs leaves nothing to be desired when it comes to mechanical integration and accuracy.
