E3 Optical Kit Encoder

The E3 is a high resolution rotary encoder with a molded polycarbonate enclosure, which utilizes either a 5-pin locking or standard connector. This optical incremental encoder is designed to easily mount to and dismount from an existing shaft to provide digital feedback information.    The E3 is easy to add to existing applications and only consists of four main components; base, cover, hubdisk and optical encoder module.The E3 is normally designed for applications of 10 feet or less. For longer cable lengths, adding a PC4 /PC5 differential line driver is recommended.The base and cover are both constructed of rugged 20% glass filled polycarbonate. Attachment of the base to a surface may be accomplished by utilizing one of several machine screw bolt circle options. Positioning of the base to the centerline of a shaft is ensured by use of a centering tool (sold separately). The cover is securely attached to the base with two 4-40 flat head screws to provide a resilient package protecting the internal components.The internal components consist of a mylar disk mounted to a precision machined aluminum hub and an encoder module. The hub is available for diameters up to 1". The module consists of a highly collimated solid state light source and monolithic phased array sensor, which together provide a system extremely tolerant to mechanical misalignments.Connection to the E3 product is made through either a 5-pin locking or standard connector (sold separately). The mating connectors are available from US Digital with several cable options and lengths. Quick, simple assembly and disassembly Rugged screw-together housing Accepts .010" axial shaft play Small size 64 to 10,000 cycles per revolution (CPR) 256 to 40,000 pulses per revolution (PPR) 2 channel quadrature TTL squarewave outputs Optional index (3rd channel)
