- Brand new diagnostics and mounting assistance on incremental encoders-
HEIDENHAIN is proud to announce the release of its next generation of RENCO brand rotary encoders to the market. This new generation includes an upgraded R35i model and a successor to the RCML15 encoder with the R35iL low profile encoder. Both solutions are equipped with a new OPTO-ASIC that provides additional features and improved functionality to users.
Both encoders now come with a brand-new Diagnostic and Field Programming (DFP) feature not before seen on incremental encoders of this type. This DFP functionality allows users to perform mounting checks, quick and simple diagnostic functions, and electronic commutation setting which can reduce mounting time of each encoder up to 10 minutes.
Additional features include an extended tolerance on mounting specifications, increased output frequency performance up to 1.83 MHz and reduced height down to 8.6 mm. All these improvements are specifically included to increase availability and ease of use of the encoder.
