With a height of just 10 mm and fixing-hole spacings of 38 mm, the compact rotary encoder also features attractive mechanical specifications, including the metal-reinforced mounting lugs and the rugged cable outlet. The quality of this product is further underlined by the specified IP68 protection class and the operating temperature range of - 40°C to + 85°C.The Vert-X 32E rotary encoder is available with a range of options, including versions with a spur connection or a looped CAN bus. A feature particularly worth mentioning is the availability of fully redundant versions with two independent, electrically separated measurement systems.
