Turck Gearless Compact Absolute Encoders

TURCK introduces an optical encoder series designed completely without gears to eliminate wear and sensitivity to magnetic fields. The Kubler by TURCK F36 encoder series’ compact size of only 36 mm with a hollow shaft diameter of up to 10 mm makes them well-suited for drive engineering and medical applications.

F36 singleturn encoders have a resolution of up to 17 bits; multiturn encoders have a resolution of up to 41 bits with over 16 million revolutions. An IP 67 protection rating and a temperature range of -40 to 90°C makes the encoders able to withstand harsh environmental conditions.

Kubler by TURCK encoders employ state-of-the-art OptoASIC technology with high integration density that results in fewer components and connection points to increase operational reliability. Further, a patented Safety Lock™ bearing structure provides increased ability to withstand vibrations and eliminates installation errors.
