Stainless steel encoders with IO-Link

June 2017 Sensors & Transducers

To complete its contactless EQR24range, Turck now offers its wear-free stainless steel encoders with an SSI, incremental, analog, and now an IO-Link output.

The variant with an IO-Link completes Turck’s portfolio of wear-free stainless steel encoders. The robust stainless steel variants of the contactless QR24 inductive encoder series are specially designed for operation in applications with particular requirements for cleaning or for extreme environmental conditions, such as in the food and beverage or heavy industry. The EQR24 series consists of models with SSI, incremental, analog and IO-Link outputs. With a V4A stainless steel housing (1.4404) and an active face made from PA12-GF30 plastic the device can withstand even the harshest chemicals and pressures in the cleaning process.

As with all QR24 models, the sensor and positioning element are fully potted and cast as two totally sealed independent units that can withstand any vibration or shocks of the shaft. Wear-intensive ball bearings or seals which lead to machine downtimes and thus long maintenance times are not required.

Thanks to its intelligent mounting concept using adapter rings, the permanently sealed IP69K encoder can be fitted on all standard shafts with diameters up to 20 mm.
