The new encoders with plastic shafts are ideal for a range of ventilator and associated medical applications. The 2-bit, quadrature output encoders provide incremental resolutions of 16 or 32 PPR and multiple termination types including cable, header, PCB pins, and solder holes. All C14 encoders are manufactured in a rugged metal housing package with several models featuring IP65 ratings for added durability and resistance to moisture and contaminants. Original members of the C14 series featured metal shafts.
There are many additional options available for C14 series devices, including a push button switch, 3.3 Vdc or 5 Vdc input voltages, horizontal or vertical orientations, 3.175 mm, 6 mm, or 6.35 mm shaft bore diameters, and 17.5 mm or 22 mm shaft lengths. The panel mount encoders can operate in a -10 to 70°C temperature range and are highly reliable with a rotational and push switch life of 1,000,000 cycles.
The C14 series is available immediately with prices starting at $20.67 per unit at 100 pieces through distribution.
