HEDM-5600 are high performance, low cost, two and three channel optical incremental encoders. These encoders emphasize high reliability, high resolution, and easy assembly. Each encoder contains a lensed LED source, an integrated circuit with detectors and output circuitry, and a codewheel which rotates between the emitter and detector IC. The outputs of the HEDM-5600 are two square waves in quadrature. This index output is a 90 electrical degree, high true index pulse which is generated once for each full rotation of the codewheel. HEDM series utilizes a film codewheel allowing for resolutions to 1024 CPR. HEDM-5600 feature external mounting ears. The quadrature signals and the index pulse are accessed through five 0.025 inch square pins located on 0.1 inch centers. Standard resolutions between 96 and 1024 counts per revolution are presently available.
