Multi-Turn Absolute Encoders Focus On Smart Industrial Applications

Sensata Technologies’ MHM5 and MHK5 absolute multi-turn encoders provide either Ethernet/IP or ProfiNet interfaces for Factory 4.0 applications. To provide additional design flexibility, these encoders are available in either shafted (MHM5) or blind shaft (MHK5) configurations.

 

Model MH encoders provide up to 16 bits per turn and 14 bits of turns counting. The compact packaging allows these encoders to be easily integrated into existing designs while a wide operating temperature range (-40°C to +85°C) and an IP65 rating makes them suitable for most any industrial application.
