Fritz Kübler’s Sendix 5006 incremental encoder in stainless-steel is suitable for use in demanding application areas that require long-term durability. Sectors that can profit from this latest development include, for example, the food industry, which has to use aggressive substances, not only because of strict hygiene regulations but also due to foodstuff ingredients such as brine or lactic acids; the packaging and utility vehicle sectors will benefit in a similar way, especially from the specific power spectrum. A sizeable contribution to the durability of the stainless-steel encoder is made by its high-grade Viton seals. These ensure impermeability, even when subjected to aggressive substances or variations in temperature. The high IP67 level of protection as well as the wide temperature range go one stage further in protecting against breakdowns in the field. The incremental encoder can easily handle large fluctuations in temperature, from -40 up to 85°C.
