SCHAUMBURG, IL (September 2016)
– HEIDENHAIN is expanding its range of incremental sealed rotary encoders for high loads with the introduction of the new ROD 620 and 630 models of the ROD 600 series. The sturdy design of these encoders’ mechanics opens up broad fields of application in machine tool, plant construction, and in position feedback systems for controlling asynchronous motors.

These ROD 600 encoders have been especially well received in the Japanese market for many years now, and with these two new models are now being officially offered globally. Also, the newly integrated EMC design of the encoder series now complies with the requirements of the CE Directives for European markets.

In addition to their sturdy housing, the rotary encoders of the ROD 600 series are characterized primarily by an improved reinforced bearing with a high axial and radial load capacity, a large and stable shaft diameter of 15 mm and a solid flange socket connection which allows for connection in the radial or axial direction. The electrical output with TTL (ROD 620) or HTL (ROD 630) output signals permits connection to many standard subsequent electronics. HEIDENHAIN also offers multiple couplings for interfacing the encoder with the rotating mechanism.
