Courtesy: Leine and LindeLeine & Linde’s FSI 800 series rotary encoders are designed for rugged motor drive applications and are also suitable for high-disturbance environments and are certified for use in SIL2/PLd applications. The FSI 800 series is highlighted by a hollow shaft encoder called the FSI 862, which has been developed for certification in accordance with EN ISO 13849-1, EN 61800-5-2, IEC 61508 and IEC 62061, thus, allowing the encoder to be used in Functional Safety applications up to risk level SIL2 and PLd, Category 3. The hollow shaft encoder model is equipped with a keyway, to be matched with a shaft with a key. The encoder is mechanically secured to the shaft as a result and will always detect even the smallest movements with certainty.
