Lika Electronic offers a varied range of industrial and fieldbus stainless steel encoders suitable to withstand the harsh requirements of food & beverage processing industry as well as the tricky operating environments of chemical, pharmaceutical and medical industry. The frame, flange and shaft are made of AISI 303 stainless steel with hygienic design and smooth paint-free finish. Thus they ensure antibacterial properties and exceptional resistance to corrosion and further avoid trapped contaminants. Rugged long-lasting bearings protected in a stainless steel housing provide enhanced encapsulation.
This results in a high IP protection (IP65/IP67) and excellent durability under extreme conditions and temperatures (up to -40°C +100°C). Connectors and cables are expressly intended to deal with chemical exposure and frequent aggressive cleaning and suit the demands of food processing industry. The range includes the I58SK optical incremental encoder; the compact MI36K / MC36K magnetic encoders; the high performance AM58K encoder with CANopen or Profibus interface.
