Elma Electronic released an all-metal body version of its E27 series encoders. The metal encoder is designed for more robust applications than the standard version where bushing strength, panel nut tightening torque and side-impact resistance is of primary importance. It can be a drop-in replacement for users who want to upgrade their designs or replace other devices without customization. The E27 line features vertical orientation, 6 Ncm torque integrated pushbutton, 1.5 Ncm rotational torque, metal threaded bushing, internal O-ring for water ingress to IP65 and standard, D-shaped aluminum shaft. Options are available as well as complete customization in the areas of shafts, housings and switching schemes.
