Magnetic Incremental Encoder Gel 2010

magnetic measuring system


Incremental rotary encoders convert rotary motion into electrical signals. Lenord + Bauers absolute rotary encoders combine the advantages of a magnetic measuring system with a robust and innovative mechanical construction. They have proven themselves in the widest variety of applications the world over, even under the most rugged industrial conditions. And of course, these absolute rotary encoders offer superlative reliability coupled with a long service life.

Output signals

Signal pattern VN

The signal pattern "VN" designates two tracks with 90º offset square-wave signals. The third track N emits a reference signal of a defined length once per revolution.

Signal pattern

Signalmuster TN, XN

Both pulse outputs and the zero signal are output additionally as inverse signals.


VS = supply voltage
US = signal voltage
a = 360º electrical
b = 90º phase shift
F = edge distance (for an output frequency of 200 kHz the edge distance is F > 0.6 s)
Signal pattern= shown for clockwise rotation (view on top of the encoder shaft)

Output level

Signal patterns VN and XN have HTL levels; signal patterns TN and UN have TTL levels (for output voltage, see electrical data). All outputs have push-pull power amplifiers and are sustained short circuit-proof.
