TURCK introduces T8 tough linear encoders
October 18, 2009 - TURCK introduces T8.LI20 and T8.LI50 magnetic linear encoders. Utilizing A and B output voltage channels plus a periodic index with the corresponding inverted channels, these encoders achieve high accuracy in a broad range of linear motion applications. The T8.LI20 and T8.LI50 linear encoders are available with either a push-pull output or an RS422 interface and provide a voltage range from 4.8 to 30 VDC.

The linear encoders are used with magnetic bands that are attached to the mounting surface and protected by a stainless-steel cover. The encoder's resolution is up to 5 µm with quadruple evaluation, and its repeat accuracy is +/- one increment with a measuring speed up to 82 feet per second, depending on the resolution.

Kübler by TURCK encoders use non-contact technology and can survive environments with high vibration (30g/10-2,000 Hz) and shock (500 g/1ms). The products can also be used outdoors, due to an IP 67 protection rating, wide temperature range and the weatherproof die-cast housing. The metal housing also offers improved shielding against electromagnetic interference.

A built-in LED provides a warning signal or an index pulse, allowing for simple set-up and diagnostics. Connections are made via a high-grade shielded PUR cable that is also suitable for cable track installations.

TURCK is an industry leader providing superior quality sensing, connectivity, network and interface products to help manufacturers improve their automated processes. For other TURCK product or technical information, contact:
