Leine & Linde Offers New Stainless Steel Model 600 Encoder for Severe Environments

POSTED 05/14/2015

ISA and IHA 600 series of absolute rotary encodersLeine & Linde introduces a new stainless steel version of the well known ISA and IHA 600 series of absolute rotary encoders.  Designed to provide motion control and feedback for machines in harsh environments, the IXA 600 stainless steel model is useful in applications where the encoder is subjected to saltwater, acids, or other aggressive cleaning solvents.

The ISA and IHA 600 series are robust absolute encoders based on inductive scanning technology. This innovative technology avoids glass, plastic, and thin metal disks to improve motion feedback reliability regardless of vibration, shock, or temperature extremes. To further enhance availability in harsh environments, this new IXA 600 model is offered with the enclosure, flange and shaft all made of stainless steel material. This steel, EN 1.4404/AISI 316L, has the grading A4 which means it is of austenitic steel and can be used in a variety of corrosive applications.
