Balluff’s new magnetic discs for use with absolute rotary magnetic encoders deliver high precision in an incredibly small form factor. That allows for use in tight spaces. They offer reliable, non-contact and wear free measuring.

Balluff offers a diverse portfolio of standardized flat and hub-shaped discs to match a variety of configurations. Inside diameters as small as 3 mm and up to 70 mm are available. Mechanical modifications can be created to meet specific application requirements.

Whether used with a complete system with sensor and electronics or integrated into a company’s electronics with the IC-MU encoder chip, this wide range of compact magnetic discs leaves nothing to be desired when it comes to mechanical integration and accuracy.

Key features:

  •     Non-contact and wear-free measuring principle
  •     Generous distance between sensor and disc
  •     Space-saving compact form factor
  •     Various codings available (16/15, 31/31, 64/63)
  •     Customized mechanical adjustment possible
