RENCO EncodersUpdated November 2020

SCHAUMBURG, IL (June 2020) – HEIDENHAIN is proud to announce the release of its next generation of RENCO brand rotary encoders to the market. This new generation includes an upgraded R35i model and a successor to the RCML15 encoder with the R35iL low profile encoder. Both solutions are equipped with a new OPTO-ASIC that provides additional features and improved functionality to users.

The RENCO R35i and R35iL encoders are ideal for use in brushless DC motors or stepper motor solutions. Their compact size combined with the high level of performance and availability make these products the top choice for applications such as medical devices, warehouse robotics and laser scanning.

Both encoders now come with a brand-new Diagnostic and Field Programming (DFP) feature not before seen on incremental encoders of this type. This DFP functionality allows users to perform mounting checks, quick and simple diagnostic functions, and electronic commutation setting which can reduce mounting time of each encoder up to 10 minutes.

Additional features include an extended tolerance on mounting specifications, increased output frequency performance up to 1.83 MHz and reduced height down to 8.6 mm. All these improvements are specifically included to increase availability and ease of use of the encoder.

RENCO products available in North America through HEIDENHAIN CORPORATION.

Inductive vs. optical vs. magnetic encoders: how to choose

Where magnetic encoders use positive and negative poles and optical encoders use light passing through a disc, inductive encoders are a little more complicated. Inductive encoders have charged coils that are passed over by a passive disc, modulating what charges the sensor receives. There are only a few companies in the world that have the […]
