BEI Sensors' LP Series is a new line of heavy-duty rotary encoders that provide reliable and precise motion control feedback in a compact, low profile package for harsh applications. Using an innovative sensing technology that allows for accurate position and speed sensing, this product family is built tough to withstand extreme temperatures, shock and vibration, wet and dirty environments. To fit a variety of system needs, three distinct encoder types are available in incremental or absolute single turn outputs; a compact version with cable or connector terminations, a terminal box option and an explosion proof model. These three versions provide a rugged and reliable motion control solution for a wide range of harsh applications in the material handling, metal process, wind turbine, off highway vehicle, elevator, agriculture, oil and gas, and building automation industries.
The LP Series' heavy-duty design provides an ingress protection rating of IP66 and protects the internal components from exposure to the elements, making these encoders durable and well suited for dirty and dusty outdoor applications. Encapsulated electronics protect the encoder from humidity, make it vibration, up to 200 m/s2 and shock resistant, up to 3000 m/s2, and able to operate in extreme temperatures, from -40°C to +100°C. A standard aluminum anodized housing resists corrosion and ensures long operational life.
