What are magnetic encoders used for?

Nov,06,2019 << Return list

A magnetic encoder is designed to output reliable digital feedback in the most demanding and harshest of application environments. Unlike optical encoders where the optical code disc can become contaminated by dirt or moisture, magnetic encoders use changes in magnetic fields as the detection method, making them much more reliable in contaminated environments.

Magnetic encoders excel in applications that require broad temperature specifications, high shock and vibration resistance, robust sealing, and contaminant protection while providing output signal reliability and downtime reduction. Popular applications for magnetic encoders include position and velocity feedback in steel, pulp, paper, & lumber mills.
