Schaumburg, Ill. —E6C-N is a multiple rotation encoder said to offer a number of time-saving, ease-of-use features for a variety of motion applications, including tripping detection of stepper motors, numeric controlled table and stacker crane positioning, and timing control of conveyor lines and packaging machinery. The device retains the origin point so that it does not need to be reset at power up. A conventional reset function for multirotation data and a reset function for single rotation allow simple origin setting of the encoder mounting and saves steps required for the reset operation. E6C-N also remembers cumulative position as it is turned more than two rotations, while keeping track of both numbers of rotations and positioning. Device head size is 50-mm dia. by 45-mm high. It features a 12-24 V dc power supply and an IEC IP50 enclosure rating.
