The new cable pull rotary encoders from Pepperl+Fuchs are available in different variants with a range of electrical interfaces. Robust magnetic rotary encoders ensure reliable measurement results.
Cable pull rotary encoders are ideal for measuring the lift height of scissor lift tables and elevators, or telescopic length for crane vehicles. In most cases, optical measurement systems are not considered for such applications due to dust, vibration, or other interference factors. By combining a cable pull and rotary encoder, linear movements are recorded both dynamically and accurately.
The new cable pulls from Pepperl+Fuchs are based on a modular product architecture and offer a wide variety of equipment and application options. Brushes or compressed air attachments remove dirt easily. Guide pulleys can be used to move around obstacles and measure objects that change direction. The length range of the measuring cable spans 1 m to 60 m, making the devices suitable for a wide range of applications. Versions are available with various surface coatings and in a range of models—from space-saving designs and lightweight plastic variants through to robust heavy-duty versions.
This is yet another application of the new magnetic rotary encoders: Mounted on the cable pull, the compact rotary encoders deliver reliable measurement results, even in difficult conditions involving dirt, shock, or vibration.
