Hall-effect encoder is compact, durable and robust

Megatron’s HSM14F Hall-effect single- turn encoder features a housing depth of just 6.2mm. The company states other features include its high resolution and long bearing life. With the optional redundant electronics, the encoder suits use in applications with increased requirements for operational reliability.

With a 14mm diameter, its compact dimensions suit applications with limited installation space. The product offers a resolution of 12 bits (4,096 steps) and an electrically effective angle of rotation of 360°. Angles offered include 90, 180 and 270°, plus customized values.

The encoder is flange-mounted, has an operating temperature range of -40 to 105°C and IP65 protection. The integral sleeve bearing has a life of 100 million revolutions and the maximum operating speed is 400min-1.

Megatron can modify the HSM14F for series production according to customer requirements. For example, PWM outputs, customised output signals, different shaft geometries, shaft flattening or cable assemblies are possible.
