Our extensive assortment of encoders also includes contactless encoders - magnetic.
Magnetic encoders - how do they work? Contactless encoders, also called angle sensors, are based on Hall's effect - Magnetic transducer, which is integrated with an electronic system. The sensor and the rotation magnet measures the angle position.
Advantages of magnetic encoders
Effectively and stable construction.
No battery, gearing, simple construction - lower costs, sizes, and saving space.
Contactless work - do not cause outwearing or increasing the costs of maintenance and servicing.
Resistant to external disruptions.
The precision of measurements.
Applications of contactless magnetic encoders
General engineering - precise positioning and measuring of speed in mechanical engineering.
Vehicles and wheel/track machines.
Applications in harsh conditions e.g. dusts or liquids, extreme temperatures, vibrations, and shocks.
Wind turbines - controlling the angle of the turbines in wind power plants, monitoring gondolas (azimuth).
