Encoder Products Company Introduces a Versatile Magnetic Encoder Module with a Threaded Housing

The Model 30MT is easy to install and provides high-performance rotary feedback over a wide range of operating conditions.

Sagle, Idaho: Encoder Products Company (EPC), worldwide manufacturers of encoders, has introduced the all new Model 30MT, a low-profile 30mm diameter magnetic encoder module. By means of advanced sensing and signal processing technology, the Model 30MT provides accurate incremental feedback, even in harsh operating conditions. With its threaded housing, the Model 30MT is simple to install. See the unboxing video for an overview.

Designed For Harsh Operating Conditions
Designed for tough industrial environments, the Model 30MT offers sealing up to IP69K and is virtually impervious to dust, dirt, and moisture. The Model 30MT features a chemically inert high-temperature nylon composite housing and non-contact magnetic sensing. The encoder is capable of operating in temperatures from -40º C to 120º C and features a threaded housing for easy installation. With a generous sensor-to-magnet air gap of 0.022", the Model 30MT holds ratings of 100g @ 11ms for shock and 20g @ 10 to 3000 Hz for vibration.

High Performance Magnetic Sensing
Even with its tough housing, the Model 30MT features advance signal processing circuitry which allows for a wide sensor-to-magnet air gap while still providing excellent waveform symmetry and repeatability, delivering signal accuracy exceeding that of many magnetic encoders.

Suitable for high-performance applications, the Model 30MT offers:
• A threaded housing for quick and easy installation
• Sealing up to IP69K
• Resolution up to 1024 CPR
• Maximum frequency of 350MHz
• Optional index channel with quadrature
• Four output types
• An 8-pin M12 connector




Applications
The Model 30MT is a versatile, cost-effective solution for non-contact, end-of-shaft rotary feedback in commercial, industrial and non-industrial applications. Some examples are: servo or stepper motor control; mobile equipment speed and steering sensing; timber processing machinery; studio and stage equipment; solar panel positioning; vending machines; rotary valve positioning; punch presses; and robotics.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
