HTx36 Rotary Encoders with Solid- or Hollow Shaft in Resolution Level Standard
HTx36 encoders in the Resolution Level Standard convincingly occupy the field of contactless encoders. They close the gap between simple and heavy-duty application requirements, such as in plants, laboratory equipment, medical apparatus and facilities for renewable energy production.
The HTx36 encoder family is one of the most robust encoders with magnetic sensor technology in the MEGATRON product range. This is what the massive aluminium housing, a double-ball-bearing, a stainless steel shaft and the high IP protection grade are standing for, in combination with a modern 3D Hall gradient-based magnetic sensor technology with μProcessor-based digital signal processing.
The encoder design of the HTx36 series is based on MEGATRON's growing wealth of experience gained in thousands of projects over more than sixty years. The result is a modular system consisting of components of outstanding quality. The resulting encoders have a high level of compatibility with many standard applications and are also equipped with the ability to be optimally adapted to the respective application requirements. The modular encoder concept allows prompt customer-specific adaptations, even in small series, on the basis of a clearly structured price model. Typical modifications are a customer-specific shaft geometry, the signal output function, special cable lengths or individually assembled electrical connection cables.
HTx36 encoders have a maximum lifespan within their specifications and leave contact-based sensor technology far behind in terms of lifespan, continuous actuation speed, stability and repeatability of the measurement results. In a direct comparison of technologies, even the robust optical measurement value detection has its disadvantage in terms of lifespan. Long-term monitoring of MEGATRON encoders in terms of the number of defects or failures shows that the rate is practically zero, even after decades of use, and they are rightly referred to as endurance runners or "Infini(ty) turns".
