The Kübler by Turck 2430 shaft and 2440 hollow shaft miniature encoders are available in absolute versions.TURCK Miniature Encoder The encoders boast a 24 mm diameter housing that makes them ideal for space-restricted areas, with a non-contact design that minimizes wear - reportedly delivering exceptional ruggedness in a compact package.

Rather than determining encoder position based upon the home position, as incremental varieties do, 2430 and 2440 absolute encoders assign a unique output for each position. With this design, the encoders retain specific position data, even if equipment power is turned off.

All 2430 and 2440 miniature encoders deliver a maximum speed rating of 12,000 RPM, plus an extensive temperature range of -20 to 85 ºC to suit diverse plant environments. With radial and axial cable outlet options, these compact encoders demonstrate even further applicability in tight spaces.
