Another first from TURCK

 

With the RI360P-QR24 sensor, TURCK is the first manufacturer to offer a non-contact inductive universal encoder with high resolution, absolutely wear-free operation – which is at the same time immune to magnetic fields. 
 
The sensor and the positioning element of the encoder are fully encapsulated and therefore designed as two independent and fully sealed units that work together without contact. 
 
Any vibration or shock from the shaft is not passed on to the sensor, making the RI360P-QR24 a superior sensor compared to both optical and magnetic encoders. 
 
With a high degree of protection to IP69K and over 18-bit resolution, machine downtimes and maintenance times resulting from encoder wear are eliminated, even with high-precision and high-speed applications.
 
TURCK developed a revolutionary parameterization and mounting concept for the encoder. This turns the RI360P-QR24 into a universal encoder for any standard industrial application. 
 
Users can parameterize the device either as an incremental, multi-turn or single-turn encoder. This variant allows operators to also set output signals, switch points and measuring ranges individually via IO Link.
 
TURCK also offers a high-resolution variant with an SSI output, a Modbus and voltage/current version, as well as an encoder compliant with the e1 specification, for use on mobile machines. 
 
The mounting concept of the encoder also extends its application range: Adapter rings enable the encoder to be fitted on all standard shafts with diameters up to 20mm.
