Product description: Optoelectronic Manual Encoder MRX50

The compact MRX50 panel encoders with 50 ppr. have proven their accuracy and quality in hundreds of thousands of operations and can be customized to meet your specific requirements

The panel encoder MRX50 is unrivalled in its range of features. This product design, with its fine gradation of 50 detents and combination of push-buttons, is unsurpassed even under the most demanding environmental conditions (P65). Even after many hundreds of thousands of operations, the robust and precise panel encoder ensures that the quality of its haptic characteristics, such as detent and shaft play, remains almost unchanged. This has been confirmed by customers who have extensively tested the sensor and chosen the MRX50. This makes the manual encoder the first choice when it comes to durability and consistent quality.
MEGATRON customizes the panel encoders on customer request. An individual product adaptation could be specific shaft geometry, custom detent torque or push button force, as well as special electrical connection variants.

Portfolio allocation

  • Detents / resolutions: One detent
    There is one mechanical detent of 50 ppr. (25 audible and tactile "clicks") available.
  • Detent torques: Two variants
    The MRX50 panel encoder offers two detent torques: 0,4 ±0,2 Ncm or 0,8 ±0,2 Ncm. Customized detent torques are available on request.
  • Push button: With or without push button
    The panel encoder has an integrated (or optionally no) push button. In the portfolio comparison, the travel path of the MRX50 push button is in the midfield. Applications which require a longer travel path for the push button please have a look at the series MRT, for short travel path at series MRB.
  • Design:
    Compact in four electrical connection variants, shaft side up to IP65.
  • Power supply / output signal:
    5 V or 3.3 V power supply, TTL output
