Leine & Linde Encoders for washdown and severe environments
Leine & Linde’s RXI and RXA 500 series of incremental and absolute encoders now are available with a stainless steel enclosure, flange and shaft. This helps to enhance suitability for application in harsh environments, such as when the encoder is subjected to aggressive liquids for washdown in food processing or to salt spray in offshore environments. Two types of steel are available—304/A2 or 316/A4—both of which can be used in corrosive applications. Absolute versions are available with up to 14-bit single-turn outputs, with parallel TTL, HTL, SSI and CANopen interfaces. Incremental versions are available with up to 10,000-ppr resolution. They can operate at temperatures up to 100 °C.
