The MA20 measuring wheel encoder provides position and speed feedback for conveyor systems. The two-in-one device combines a high-resolution optical incremental encoder and a precise measuring wheel. Capable of resolutions as high as 25,000 ppr, the encoder provides precise measuring results even at very low conveyor speeds. The measuring wheel encoder's HEX switch allows the user to select from 16 predefined resolutions between 100 and 25,000 ppr. These pre-set resolutions ensure that the multi-purpose encoder meets a range of application requirements and minimizes inventory requirements for manufacturers. Featuring continuously adjustable contact pressure, the encoder eliminates measuring errors and ensures reliable surface contact without slip. Measuring 200 mm in circumference, the wear-resistant measuring wheel is available in a variety of rubber hardnesses (Shore durometer between 40 or 70) to ensure optimal adhesion to conveyor materials.
