Heidenhain’s next generation RENCO brand rotary encoders includes an upgraded R35i model and the R35iL low profile encoder, a successor to the RCML15.
Both solutions are equipped with a new OPTO-ASIC that provides additional features and improved functionality to users.
Use these encoders in brushless DC motors or stepper motor solutions in applications such as medical devices, warehouse robotics and laser scanning.
Both encoders are equipped with a brand-new Diagnostic and Field Programming (DFP) feature not before seen on incremental encoders of this type. This DFP functionality allows users to perform mounting checks, quick and simple diagnostic functions, and electronic commutation setting which can reduce mounting time of each encoder by up to 10 minutes.
Additional features include an extended tolerance on mounting specifications, increased output frequency performance up to 1.83 MHz and reduced height down to 8.6 mm. All these improvements are specifically included to increase availability and ease of use of the encoder.
