Rotary Encoder And Inclinometer Reside In Single Package

Sensor specialist FSG has developed a rotary encoder for simultaneous angle and tilt measurement, for instance in draw-wire systems and cable drums. The series MH64-II-CAN/Mems/GS65 magnetic multi-turn encoder features a redundant Hall sensor for measuring a maximum of 64 turns as well as a redundant single-axis inclinometer that detects tilt angles from 0° to 360°. Without internal gears, the sensor can also be used as a single-turn encoder. The rotary encoder and the inclination sensor both feature 14-bit signal resolution. Main target applications are construction machinery, reach stackers, mobile work platforms, as well as ship and harbor cranes. A CAN bus interface supports CANopen and the CANopen safety protocol for signal output. The sensor is therefore also suitable for safety applications. The GS65 housing provides IP67 ingress protection. It can be wired up or connected via M12 plug. For more details, checkout the product page.
