General Information

Incremental encoders convert rotations into electric signals. Lenord + Bauer incremental rotary pulse encoders combine the advantages of a magnetic measuring system and a robust mechanical design. They have proven successful all over the world in many different applications and even under roughest industrial conditions. Their high reliability and a long service life go without saying.

Fields of Application

  • Heavy industry
  • Paper-making and packaging machines
  • Filling machines
  • Transporting and storing systems
  • Machines for processing steel, wood, stone, textiles and plastic, etc.

Main Characteristics

  • High resolution up to 273.408 pulses per revolution
  • Interpolation up to 1024
  • Additionally current output 0 ... 20 mA, 4 ... 20 mA, -20 ... +20 mA (option)
  • Reference signal
  • Cable or plug outlet, axial or radial
  • High electromagnetic compatibility (EMC)
  • For use in explosion hazardous areas (option)

Measuring Principle

Measuring principle The encoders work with differential sensors depending on magnetic fields and a precision toothed wheel as measure. The sensors scan the tooth structure of the toothed wheel and emit a sine or cosine voltage. The integrated evaluation electronics in ASIC and SMD technology converts the analogue sensor signals into incremental output signals.

Advantages of the magnetic system

  • No adverse effect due to condensed water
  • Absolute operational reliability even in case of high humidity (dewing) and frequent change of ambient temperature
  • Extremely insensitive to dirt, oil and water
  • Extremely shock- and vibration-resistant because the measure is not made of glass nor plastic
  • Outstanding operational safety over a very long period of time as it does not suffer from ageing effects as optical systems do

Output Signals

Signal pattern V, VN

Signal pattern "V" stands for two tracks with square-wave signals, offset by 90 (push-pull output). With each revolution, a reference signal with defined length is put out on the third track N (optionally). At an output frequency of 200 kHz the edge distance (F) is ≥ 0.6 s.

Signal Pattern V, VN - Lenord & Bauer Rail Speed Sensors and Rotary Pulse Encoders


Signal pattern T, TN, U, UN, X, XN

Both tracks and the reference signal (option) are additionally output as inverse signals.

Signal pattern T, TN, U, UN, X, XN - Lenord & Bauer Rail Speed Sensors and Rotary Pulse Encoders



Signal pattern S, SN

Pulses which are independent of the rotational direction and the duration of which is constant are derived from the square-wave signals as per signal pattern V and put out on track 2. Furthermore, a signal depending on the rotational direction is obtained from the signal pattern which is put on track 1. Once per each revolution a reference signal is output on the third track N (optional). The outputs have a final push-pull power stage. All outputs are sustained short-circuit-proof. The pulses follow a possible change of rotation with a slight delay, in order that a subsequent counter setting can be adjusted to the counting direction prior to the pulse. The sense-dependent signal may be reversed via a which is accessible from outside (switch 1).

Measuring current which is independent of the sense of rotation and which has a nominal range of +4 ... +20 mA.



Current output

For the means of displaying and controlling, a measuring current of 0 to 20 mA, 4 to 20 mA or -20 to +20 mA can be obtained from the pulse frequency which depends on the speed and if ordered the sense of rotation. For this purpose the measuring pulses are integrated and converted into a rotation speed dependent output current. There is a strictly linear interrelation between the measuring current and the pulse frequency. Because of the high resolution (up to 273,408 pulses per revolution) a DC output current is obtained which shows a low harmonic content even at a very low speed range (e.g. 0 to 0.5 min-1). The harmonic content depends on the pulse frequency and the determined attenuation d, latter influencing the rising and trailing edge times as well as the delay time in case of erratic changes of the speed. The preferred attenuation had been specified when ordering the encoder corresponding to the following diagram; d3 is the default setting.

Protection of the electronics (optional)

Protection against humidity

The encoders electronic unit is coated with a highly effective protection against humidity, salt-water atmosphere and corrosive vapours to ensure their proper functioning during years even under roughest conditions.

Condensed-water outlet

Water may accumulate in the encoder if it is exposed to multiple dewing. The water can drain off through the condensed-water outlet. When mounting the encoder the outlet must show downward. The protection class drops to IP 64.

Protection against vibration

The additional fixing of mechanical parts with special plastic prevents the electronics and the connections inside the encoder from vibrating. Thus the proper and continuous operation of the encoder - even if exposed to extreme vibration and shock is guaranteed.
