Variants with incremental or absolute interfaces, single or multi-turn

Rotary encoders from Balluff are used wherever lengths, positions, speeds/rotary movements, or angles/angular velocities need to be recorded. They convert mechanical movements into digital electrical signals.

Balluff offers a variety of measuring principles to best meet the needs of the application. For example, if a high resolution is required, optical encoders are often used, while magnetic encoders are preferred for applications in harsh environmental conditions. In addition, these encoders are available in a corrosion-resistant stainless-steel version with IP69K protection.

With a variety of designs, from miniature encoders to multi-turn hollow shaft encoders, our encoder family offers solutions for a wide range of requirements in mechanical engineering.
