Product description: HTx36E ‐ True-power-on CAN, SSI or incremental

The electronics of the HTx36E rotary encoders represent the today's technically feasible in the field of contactless rotary encoders with gradient-based magnetic measurement technology. They are the spearhead of MEGATRON's magnetic encoder range and are the top product in terms of resolution/precision, even when measuring the highest possible angles.

This is what HTx36E encoders stand for

For absolute rotary encoders:

  • The battery and gear-less energy harvesting multiturn true-power-on measurement-method
  • The available high single and multiturn resolutions for fine-graded measurement results
  • The high system accuracy for the most precise measurement results   

For incremental rotary encoders:

  • Resolution from 1 to 16384 pulses per revolution (ppr), within this range any number of increments in a single step can be ordered
  • Optionally, the position of the index pulse (Z) can be set by the customer in the application

The gearless, battery-free True Power-On multiturn sensors are based on patented technologies. To ensure high system accuracy, each encoder is automatically matched to a normal before leaving the factory. The patented Energy Harvesting multiturn method ensures that the encoder counts the revolutions of the encoder shaft correctly, even when the encoder is in a de-energized state.

The digital fieldbus and communication interfaces CANopen, SAE J1939 and SSI ensure reliable and digital transmission of measured values to the evaluation unit and guarantee trouble-free integration and monitoring of the encoder as part of the application. The HTx36E encoders are only available with digital or incremental interfaces for the transmission of measured values. Compared to analogue transmission, this ensures that the measured values can be transmitted to the customer and evaluated with sufficient accuracy.

Of course, high-quality encoder electronics are no use if the encoder mechanics cannot withstand the high demands. The HTx36E is one of the most robust magnetic encoders in the MEGATRON range, thanks to its robust metal housing, double ball bearings and stainless steel shaft. The encoders offer maximum durability within their specifications and outperform potentiometric sensors in terms of durability, continuous actuating shaft speeds, and stability and repeatability of measured values. Even in terms of lifetime, the robust optical sensing technology loses out in a head-to-head comparison.
