Encoders Handle Harsh Environments

March 11, 2006
NorthStar harsh-duty optical encoders can be used in applications where regulatory washdown, high-pressure steam or caustic chemicals are present. A double-labyrinth sealed housing enables the units to achieve ratings of IP66/IP67 and NEMA 4X or NEMA 6. The encoders are rated to 80°C. Danaher Industrial Controls, Gurnee, IL
