Signal reliability is assured thanks to an EMV concept which is specifically designed for the most extreme conditions of use.
Our encoders have an optimal degree of protection for your application – up to IP67 + IP69K. Thanks to carefully selected materials and sealing elements, we are able to achieve resistance to salt-water, foodstuffs and oil.
Very high permissible bearing loads
The optimally designed bearing package ensures very high load capability of the shaft.
Rugged industrial encoders
For simulating environmental effects during type and endurance testing, we use our own vibration shaker, our own climatic chambers and a test rig for checking IP protection.
At least 1000 hours before the WDG encoder might fail due to LED light performance, an early warning output switches.
Our careful choice of components guarantees a long service life for the WDG encoders, for example our LEDs still shine brightly and reliably after more than 11 years of operation.
All encoders with HTL outputs can be wired in complete safety - it does not matter if the connections are reversed, even on a long-term basis.
