Vancouver, WA - US Digital is releasing a new optical encoder family: the HD25A.
The HD25A is a rugged absolute encoder designed for heavy duty industrial use. This absolute encoder is a non-contacting optical rotary position sensor which reports the shaft angle within a 360 range.
The HD25A can be used for automation, motion control and robotic applications. As opposed to incremental encoders, the HD25A reports the absolute position rather than just the change in position. The HD25A is a true absolute encoder over one revolution, and also has a multi-turn mode. All user programmable parameters such as resolution, origin, direction, and mode are permanently stored in an internal EEPROM.
The interface of the HD25A has 2 seperate outputs, one utilizes our digital SEI (Serial Encoder Interface) bus and the other is an analog output. Software is available for easy installation and interfacing.
Several versions are available including: a 10-pin screw-on connector version, a cable version that comes standard with a 6' cable, a shaft seal version to protect the encoder from liquids, and a 3/8" diameter shaft version with or without flat.
They are available from stock with little or no lead-time. Technical specs and pricing are available here.
