With its ECI 4000/EBI 4000 rotary encoder series, HEIDENHAIN adds to its existing line of inductive position encoders. The modular devices have a 90-mm hollow shaft without an integral bearing and consist of a scanning unit and the scale drum. They have an overall height of only 20 mm.
The single-turn version of the ECI 4000 features resolution of 20 bits. Alternatively, the EBI 4000, is a multi-turn unit with a revolution counter option and resolution of 16 bits that is backed up by an external battery buffer.
Equipped with the digital EnDat 2.2 interface, the encoders benefit from the interface’s encoder-specific functions, such as the data transfer from one temperature sensor inside the encoder and one outside of it.
