MOUNTING BRACKET TURNS SHAFT ENCODERS INTO LINEAR MEASUREMENT SOLUTION

New Mounting Bracket Fits Size 25 Programmable and Absolute Shaft Encoders

SAGLE, Idaho: Encoder Products Company (EPC) has introduced a new linear measurement solution: a bracket that fits all of EPCs Size 25 Shaft Encoders with 2.5" flange mounts, including absolute and programmable encoders.


The bracket works with:

• The Model MA63S absolute encoder. With resolution up to 14 bits Single Turn and 39 bits Multi-Turn, the MA63S is available in either SSI or CANopen output.

• The Model 725I. In addition to the rated bearing load of 80 lbs, this fully isolated encoder-within-an-encoder uses an internal flexible mount and independent set of bearings to protect the encoder from the effects of severe axial and radial shaft loading.

• The programmable Model 25SP Accu-CoderPro™, which offers programmable output type, waveform, and resolution.

"This is a fantastic option when applications call for a robust linear measurement solution that requires absolute feedback or a programmable encoder," explains Sarah Walter, Electrical Engineer and EPC Technical Sales Manager. "It solves the problem of trying to design and source or assemble a bracket, measuring wheel, and encoder. With this new bracket, you just order it with the Size 25 encoder and the measuring wheel you need for your application. Its one streamlined system."

EPC also offers a variety of measuring wheels designed specifically to fit the mounting bracket.

About Encoder Products Company:

Encoder Products Company (EPC) is a leading designer and world-wide manufacturer of motion sensing devices. EPC began operations in 1969, producing a line of custom encoders from a small, home-based shop. Today, EPC is the largest privately-held encoder manufacturer in North America, producing a complete line of incremental and absolute rotary encoders and accessories.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
