The Model 15T or 15H offers a high performance feedback solution in a low profile package. Unlike modular or kit encoders, the Model 15 uses an integral bearing set and an innovative flexible mounting system, which are much more tolerant to axial ¬misalignment or radial shaft runout. The slotted flex mounts provide 20 or 30 degrees of rotational adjustment for commutation or index pulse timing. Installation is quick and easy — for brushless servo motor applications, three 120° electrical phase tracks can provide up to 12 pole commutation feedback. The optional 100° C and 120° C temperature options allow servo motors to operate at higher power outputs and duty cycles. The Model 15 provides stable and reliable operation and is an excellent replacement for other ¬manufacturers' modular encoders where a high performance solution is desired.

- Up to 12 pole commutation optional for brushless motor control
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.
