Encoder Products: Programmable thru-bore encoder

Encoder Products Co. has introduced the Model 58TP – a 58 mm, thru-bore, programmable encoder specifically designed for the challenges of an industrial environment, and featuring an advanced set of electronics that allow the encoder to be programmed for exact application needs.

The Model 58TP is a versatile, cost-effective solution for rotary feedback in many industrial and non-industrial applications, such as: motor control, conveyors, elevator controls, machine control, food processing, process control, robotics, material handling, and all types of motion control feedback. Almost anywhere a thru-bore or hollow-bore encoder is called for, the Model 58TP will get the job done.

Using EPC's optional programming module for the Model 58TP, users may select from 6 output types, choose from 32 different waveforms, and program any resolution from 1 to 65,536 CPR – that's 262,144 counts using 4x quadrature counting.

These programming features allow a single encoder to be configured for multiple applications, enabling one encoder to replace many different part numbers, and providing cost savings on inventory and down-time replacement.

The unit offers:

  • Thru-bore or hollow-bore options
  • Programmable waveform – 32 options
  • Programmable output type – 6 different output types
  • Programmable resolution – program any resolution from 1 to 65,536 CPR
  • Standard and metric bore sizes up to 5/8” or 15 mm
  • Multiple flex mount options
  • Seven different connector types
  • Operating temperature option of -40° to 100° C
  • Sealing up to IP67.
