Encoder Products Company (EPC), worldwide manufacturers of rotary encoders, introduces the all new Model 30M, a low-profile 30mm diameter magnetic encoder module. The Model 30M provides accurate incremental feedback, even in harsh operating conditions, by means of advanced sensing and signal processing technology.
High Performance Magnetic Sensing
The Model 30M combines a hall-effect sensor, advanced signal processing circuitry and a small, powerful magnetic target, which can be affixed to a rotating shaft via an optional shaft adaptor or insert. With a wide sensor-to-magnet air gap and excellent waveform symmetry and repeatability, the Model 30M tolerates shaft misalignment and delivers signal accuracy exceeding that of many magnetic encoders.
Suitable for high-performance applications, the Model 30M offers resolution up to 1,024 CPR, a maximum frequency of 350MHz, up to 8-pole commutation, an optional index channel, two voltage selections and four output types. Connector options include an 8-pin M12, or an 8-pin or 16-pin Molex with an integral strain relief. An optional centering and gap-setting tool enables quick and easy installation.
Designed for Harsh Operating Conditions
Impervious to dust, dirt, and moisture, the Model 30M features a chemically inert high-temperature nylon housing and non-contact magnetic sensing. The encoder is capable of operating in temperatures ranging from -40ºC to 120ºC and can be sealed to IP69K. With a generous sensor-to-magnet air gap of 0.022”, the Model 30M holds ratings of 100g @ 11ms for shock and 20g @ 10 to 3000 Hz for vibration.
The Model 30M is a versatile, cost-effective solution for non-contact, end-of-shaft rotary feedback in commercial, industrial and non-industrial applications. Some examples are servo or stepper motor control, mobile equipment speed and steering sensing, timber processing machinery, studio and stage equipment, solar panel positioning, vending machines, rotary valve positioning, punch presses, and robotics.

The Basics Of How An Encoder Works
Before you can fully understand how an encoder works, you should first understand what an encoder is and what it does. An encoder is a sensing device that provides feedback from the physical world-- it converts motion to an electrical signal which can be read by some type of control device, such as a counter or PLC. The control device can then use that signal to control a conditional event, such as activating a print head to create a mark at a specific location.
There are several variables to consider when choosing an encoder. The most common are mounting style, resolution, output type, frequency response, accuracy, and electrical connections. Environment also plays a role: specifically, encoders must withstand a range of conditions such as moisture and dust that can seep into internal optics and electronics. Sealed encoders are available to address this. Encoders are also available that address other environmental conditions, including exposure to corrosive and caustic chemicals and ambient temperatures that reach up to 120° C.
