ENX 16 RIO encoder from maxon motor
maxon motor presents a top-of-the-range high-resolution encoder. The ENX 16 RIO offers an impressive resolution of up to 65,536 counts per turn in a compact and rugged housing.
The new maxon ENX 16 RIO encoder (Reflective, Interpolated, Optical) fulfills all the requirements for a high-resolution optical encoder in a compact design. The resolution can be configured at the factory or online. With 16 millimeters outer diameter and 7 millimeters overall length, the housing is mechanically robust and protected from dust due to its injection-molded construction. The operating temperature range is -40 °C to +100 °C.
Easily configured online for combinations with maxon motors
The encoder can be combined and configured with matching drives online. It fits the new brushless EC-i 30 motors and the brushed DCX motors (diameters of 16 millimeters and up). The counts per turn and the electrical interface of the ENX 16 RIO encoder are also configurable online.
