Environmentally Sealed Against Water Ingretion
Environmentally Sealed Optical Encoders Through the use of a magnetic shaft coupling connection, Model ES is completely sealed with an IP67 environmental rating. This coupling connection allows the encoder to be isolated from high shock and vibration, dust tight, and impervious to debris or liquid in the environment. Model ES encoders can even operate while fully immersed in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes. Since the Model ES is not physically coupled to external equipment, it is much more tolerant of shaft misalignment, meaning no more broken couplings! Ideal for applications with heavy wash-downs, temporary water immersions, and excessive environmental debris.
