Modern industrial design and excellent technical properties
Extended temperature range:

The operating temperature range of the WDGI standard encoder with connector outlet is -40 °C and +85 °C. This extended temperature range can be implemented as an option for encoders with cable outlet, thereby widening the possible range of applications without shortening the encoder‘s service life.

Maximum pulse frequencies: 600 kHz to 2 MHz

The WDGI encoders offer the option of working at pulse rates from 1,000 ppr with pulse frequencies of up to 600 kHz (TTL) or 2 MHz (HTL). Consequently, high pulse rates can be deployed at high speeds, considerably increasing the machine‘s measurement accuracy at high throughput rates.

Choice of materials and processing with a view to environmental compatibility

The encoder cover is made of die-cast aluminium. So, unlike the die-cast zinc cover which is commonly used on the market, the housing‘s eco-friendly powder coating can be maintained. Customers can therefore choose the colour they‘d like with a clear conscience.

Clever option: self-adhesive membrane

This membrane guarantees that the encoder is highly reliable, even when temperatures change quickly – during use in mobile work machines or generally in high air humidity, for example. In spite of the membrane, the encoders retain their high protection class of up to IP67 and are still resistant to harsh environmental conditions.

Maximum bearing loads: 500 N

The heavy-duty variant WDGI58D offers a standard bearing load of 500 N each in the axial and radial load directions. The encoder therefore also has sufficient reserves even when faced with extreme shaft loads, which is decisive for a long service life. A long tool life and low maintenance costs are guaranteed.

Evidence of our experience down to the smallest of details

A special feature derived from customer requests is the eyelet integrated in the housing cover, to which a labelling strip can be attached (e.g. to identify the system / location).
