OptoPulse EIL580: New incremental encoder family

Product Announcement from Baumer Ltd.

OptoPulse EIL580: New incremental encoder family-Image

The new OptoPulse EIL580 encoders from Baumer are available in various mechanical designs:

  • Clamping flange with solid shaft 10 mm
  • Synchro flange with solid shaft 6mm
  • Blind hollow shaft from 8 to 15 mm
  • Through hollow shaft from 8 to 15mm

Finely graduated increments enable 100 to 5000 impulses per turn. Particularly conceived for high-precision requirements, the optical sensing technique will ensure absolute accuracy and consistently high signal quality throughout temperatures from -40 °C to +85 °C. OptoPulse EIL580 encoders will substantially enhance your application’s productivity and level of control.

Product diversity merges with extreme robustness – from the solid die-cast housing with massive 1.5 mm aluminium walls - optionally with IP 67 protection - to short-circuit proof connection technology protected against reverse polarity. The unique ShaftLock bearing feature prevents the bearing pack from any misalignment and thus the code disc from damage from excessive shaft load. Excellent shock protection to 300 g and vibration protection to 30 g add another plus on reliability and precision.

M12 or M23 connectors and cable outlets with varied lengths provide utmost connection flexibility. Thanks to a comprehensive range of mounting accessories such as stator and shaft couplings, torque support and peripheral equipment like measuring wheels, installation will be quick and easy.
