Product Description

The model R21 is an optical shaft encoder in a 2" diameter x 1-7/8" (Ø51mm x 48mm) housing with an integral mounting arm, compatible with a variety of mounting accessories for installation either above or below a moving web or conveyor. When used with the MW-8 (8.00" circumference) or MW-20 (20.00cm circumference) measuring wheel it can accurately track the web or conveyor to within ±.007" or ±.016cm per revolution. This is not a light duty encoder - it was built with heavy duty bearings and solid construction for reliable, long-term operation in continuous duty applications. During installation various features, such as the number of pulses per revolution, can be selected by setting configuration switches. The available features depend on the encoder model.
