Low-Cost Model A37: Mini Rotary Absolute Encoder
Product Announcement from Gurley Precision Instruments
The model A37 mini encoder is a 12-bit single-turn absolute rotary encoder with opto-electronic technology. These encoders are used in a wide variety of position-sensing applications for the measuring of angles and distances in relatively small envelopes. Mechanical features include a 37-mm diameter aluminum housing, a 3-4 mm (0.125-0.25") diameter stainless steel shaft, and precision ball bearings. Output formats include serial, parallel and multiplexed versions of Gray code or natural binary.
The model A37 is one of a family of new low-cost true absolute encoders available from Gurley. Other models include a 19 mm diameter absolute rotary encoder with a resolution of 12 bits and a 58 mm diameter absolute rotary encoder with resolutions of 12, 14, 15 or 16 bits.
