S16 Product Description

Restriction of Hazardous Substances

The S16 16mm micro-optical shaft encoder is designed to provide A, B, and Index digital quadrature signals for high volume restricted space applications. The S16 encoder is available with either a bushing or ball bearing system for high speed applications. The shaft torque is designed to provide the feel of a potentiometer for front-panel manual interfaces. The S16 series encoder is connected using a 5-conductor, polarized, 0.8mm pitch connector (Hirose part number DF52-5P-0.8C). The mating cable (see the Cables web page) is not included and is available separately.

TIMING DIAGRAM

CPR
The number of Cycles (C) of the A or B outputs Per Revolution.
Index (I)
The index output goes high once per revolution, coincident with the low states of channels A and B, nominally 1/4 of one cycle (90°e).
One Shaft Rotation
360 mechanical degrees.
One Electrical Degree (°e)
1/360th of one cycle.
One Cycle (C)
360 electrical degrees (°e). Each cycle can be decoded into 1, 2, or 4 states, referred to as x1, x2, or x4 resolution multiplication.
PPR
The number of resolvable Positions Per Revolution of the encoder disk with x4 quadrature decoding.
Quadrature (Z)
The phase lag or lead between channels A and B in electrical degrees, nominally 90°e.
Symmetry
A measure of the relationship between (X) and (Y) in electrical degrees, nominally 180°e.
