5862/82 Absolute Encoders
Minneapolis, MN - TURCK Inc. announces the "Kubler by TURCK" innovative and patented Intelligent Sensing Technology ("IST") incorporated into the design of their new line of programmable absolute multiturn encoders. Flexible, configurable, tough and low profile characterize our 5862/82 absolute encoders. The 25-bit resolution enables 8192 positions in the first turn and 4096 turns. These encoders can be ordered with both an SSI or RS485 output. Shock ratings (250 g/6 ms), greater than five times the industry standard and high resistance to EMI, are achieved through our patented "Intelligent Sensing Technology" ("IST"). Constructed without gears and a custom ASIC, all components are mounted on a single PCB. Capable of 6000 RPM continuous duty and rapid acceleration changes, the 5862/82 is highly suited for use in clutch and brake applications. Available in shaft and hollowshaft construction, the 5882 hollowshaft has a low profile with shaft bores up to 3/8" and 12 mm. The hollowshaft simplifies mounting, eliminates couplings, reduces cost, increases accuracy and extends life. The EZ-Turn programming software enables the user to configure total resolution, number of turns, output code, direction of rotation, limit switches and alarms. This software also contains a menu for system diagnostics.

TURCK is a leading supplier of advanced control solutions to help manufacturers improve their automated processes, products and profits.
