Nemicon recently unveiled its the 7S series of incremental rotary encoders. With an outside diameter of 7.2mm and a body height of 10.5mm, the devices are designed for space limited applications. The shaft-type encoders offer three signal outputs (A, B, and index) and three resolution options, ranging from 100 to 400 pulses per rotation.

The output of the 7S series encoders is open collector with a maximum current consumption of 30mA. Maximum operating frequency is 100kHz, and starting torque is 3gram-force centimeters or less. The miniature devices operate over a temperature range of –10°C to 80°C and carry an IP50 environmental-resistance rating suitable for industrial machinery applications. Each device comes equipped with a 500mm cable.

Datasheet for the 7S series encoder can be found here.
