S2E BML Encoder - .PDF file.

Balluff’s S2E Rotary BML rotary encoder provides positional information for applications such as conveyors, speed control and angle measurement.

The rotary encoder is a lower-cost, more effective improvement on standard rotary encoder designs, according to the company.

The basic design of the S2E consists of a magnetically encoded ring and a non-contact sensor head.

This assembly provides a quadrature output at up to 46,000 pulses per revolution.

An available mounting hub allows its magnet ring to be adapted to a range of applications.

Balluff’s S2E provides accurate velocity and position tracking of virtually any rotary movement to monitor continuous and/or oscillating rotary shaft motion.

It converts rotary motion into linear measurement to provide compact linear positioning information.

The encoder also provides continuous feedback allowing PLC-directed set points and electronic cams to be established to make the operation of the host machine more flexible.

The S2E gives a PLC the position information necessary for virtually all conveyor-based manufacturing operational functions, such as multiple station error proofing with single-station rejection.

It also provides conveyor speed control monitoring.

Position information provided by the S2E can be used by the central PLC to develop software-driven programmable cams.

The S2E provides accurate angle measurement for any apparatus that revolves around a shaft.

For example, it can be mounted on the spindle of a mitre saw.

An output signal can be sent to a digital display to give the operator an accurate visual indication of the angular position of the saw blade.

The S2E provides the accurate control and monitoring of any rotating shaft such as a motor or any rotating equipment.

For example, rotational positions of solar reflectors can be monitored by the encoder.

An index pulse can be used to set home position (due east, for example).

Balluff’s rotary encoder has an IP67 rating, which means it can withstand outdoor environments.

The rotary encoder converts rotary motion into linear measurement to provide compact linear positioning information.
