Bodine Electric Co. announces its Incodermotors, a selection of permanent magnet DC and brushless DC motors and gearmotors that are equipped with encoders inside the motor. They are pre-wired and fully tested motor-encoder combinations that are ready to drop into an OEM’s design. Since the encoder is inside the motor, it is protected from harsh environments, and the overall size of the motor-encoder combination is not increased. The 4.5 12V magnetic encoders are available with one or two hall sensor output signals in resolutions of 2, 4, 8 and 30 pulses/revolution. They work with digital tachometers or other electronic devices to measure speed, distance and direction. Some common uses include door and gate openers, guided vehicles, factory automation and conveyor belts.
