Robust Incremental Encoders

Jan. 9, 2018
Kuebler offers two incremental encoders that help avoid downtime and costly repairs.

Kuebler’s Sendix 5000 and 5020 incremental encoders are designed to overcome two common threats to encoder lifecycle: heavy vibration loads and misalignment due to installation errors.


The robust mechanical design integrates interlocked bearings, strengthened outer bearings and large bearing size relative to the size of the encoder. Additionally, the encoders’ solid die-cast housing, with its IP67 protection rating, stays sealed even when subjected to harsh environmental conditions.


Other robust mechanical features that help avoid downtime and costly repairs to motor-driven systems include:

  • Wide temperature range of -40 to +85°C
  • High shaft load capacity: 100 N (radial) and 50 N (axial)
  • Maximum speed of 6,000 revolutions per minute
  • Magnetic field resistance
  • Optional seawater-resistant version


The Sendix 5000 and 5020 encoders are available in shaft and hollow shaft versions and are compatible with all U.S. and European standards. They also support M23, M12 or MIL cable connections, as well as Push-Pull, RS422 or Open Collector interfaces.
