October 9, 2014 - FSG introduces MH605-II-MU single-turn encoders. With a seawater-proof IP68 aluminum housing and a wide temperature range of -40 to +105 °C, the devices are suitable for very demanding environments. The encoders do not require a bearing point – the angle detection system features an external magnet. With a diameter of merely 13 mm and a weight of approx. 10 g, they can be easily integrated into machines and plants with limited installation space.

The units are available as different versions with a 12 Bit resolution and measuring ranges up to 360°. They can be used for instance in railway vehicles, replacing trimmer potentiometers and ensuring high-resolution operation of measuring devices. Further uses include energy and water management applications such as offshore wind turbines. Two ratiometric 0.5…4.5 V DC outputs deliver redundant signals. Thanks to their contact-free magnetic measuring principle, the encoders are virtually wear-free.
