Heavy-duty encoder operates in subsea operations
Scancon SCH68SUB heavy-duty encoder is suitable for subsea operations and is designed for offshore applications that require operation at depths to 6000 meters. Device does not require a pressurized container and it is ideal for subsea robotics, as well as seafloor applications that require motion control or position feedback. The magnetic incremental encoder provides a ø20 mm hollow bore, resolution of 2048 ppr, and an environmental rating of IP 68.
