NSF launches BGE 27 encoder, with magnetic indexing

Keywords: Encoders

NSF Controls Limited, a specialist in the design, manufacture and supply of advanced actuation products, has further extended its comprehensive range for 2004 with the launch of a family of electronic encoders called the BGE 27 range (Plate 1).

The adva-nced BGE 27 is a completely new electronic encoder series equipped with magnetic indexing and electronic impulse generation for setting digital data.

Designed primarily for menu selection functions, the BGE 27 is especially suited to applications in measuring instruments used in medical equipment and CNC controlled machines.

At the output of the BGE 27 electronic encoders, 2 × 32 rectangular impulses per output and rotation are available, while the 90 phased outputs enable the control system to recognize the direction required for the output signal. Magnetic indexing, plus the encoders' high-grade double bearing, ensures maximum wear-resistance while glass-fibre reinforced housings and a bearing cover made from nickel-plated steel provide maximum durability in the harshest operating environments. In fact, the encoders are designed for operation in a wide range of temperature ranges, up to a maximum of 70°C, and for a lifetime service of 2,000,000 rotations.

The encoders are compactly constructed, with a diameter of just 27 mm and an overall length of 61 mm, including the shaft.

The new BGE 27 electronic encoders from NSF Controls Limited, of Keighley, West Yorkshire, have been developed jointly with NSF's longstanding European Business partner Elektro- Bau-Elemente GmbH, part of the Germany-based EBE Group. The group specializes in a wide range of electronics, electromechanical components and sub-systems.
