BEI introduced the ES encoder series, a line of environmentally sealed encoders designed for harsh industrial applications. Through the use of a magnetic hub, these rugged incremental encoders are completely enclosed and sealed. The hub is installed on the equipment’s mating shaft, leaving a small air gap between it and the encoder, isolating the encoder from high shock and vibration and makes them highly tolerant of shaft misalignment. With an IP67 rating, the encoders are completely protected from environmental fluids, dust, dirt, grime, and even water immersions. They are suitable for applications with heavy wash-downs, temporary water immersions, and excessive shock, vibration or environmental debris.
