Small contactless absolute encoder from knitter-switch
knitter-switch, one of Europe’s leading switch manufacturers, has extended its product range of encoders. The new MAOP encoder series is a contactless absolute encoder in small form factor. Applications can be tooling machines, industrial controls or control panels for other applications.
Due to the coding of actual position in the output signal, the encoder is good to replace selector and step switches.
The MAOP series is a contactless optical system with a case diameter of just 26 mm. Case and shaft are metal. More features are the resolution up to 32 positions, a choice of three torques and optionally 360° operation angle or endless rotation. It gives you a click-feedback in detent positions. Optionally it is available with integrated push-button. And the series has a 2.54mm pin-header for convenient connection to wiring. The mechanical life is over 1.000.000 operations for rotation and push.
The MAOP Series as well as the complete wide range of standard DIL, tact, rotary encoder, toggle and push-button switches are available directly from knitter-switch and a number of distributors throughout Europe.
