Leine and Linde’s RXI and RXA 500 series of rotary encoders come in stainless steel versions and are designed for motion control applications in severe environments where regular washdown is necessary. They can be used in everything from forestry to windpower, with shaft and hollow-shaft options to suit virtually any application and can be used in harsh environments such as food processing salt spray in offshore environments. Two types of steel are available: 304/A2 or 316/A4, which are both of the austenitic type and can be used in a variety of corrosive applications. Absolute versions of the 500 series are available with up to 14-bit single-turn outputs, with parallel TTL, HTL, SSI, and CANopen interfaces. Incremental versions are available with up to 10000 PPR resolution and are capable of operating at temperatures up to 100 C.
