In order to make it as easy as possible for manufacturers to adapt to new requirements, SIKO GmbH has developed the MSK320R bearing-free rotary encoder.

  • Designed especially for use in forklift trucks
  • Helps users implement safety requirements such as EN 1175 (safety of industrial trucks)
  • Can be used directly on wheels for speed or rotation detection in AGVs (driverless transport systems)
  • Compact design
  • Equipped with two magnetic sensors for redundant position measurement
  • Has two completely separate position channels (A1, A2, /A1, /A2, B1, B2, /B1, /B2), and can be used in combination with secure input card in overall system up to performance level PLd
  • Small, compact housing measuring 35 x 25 x 10 mm (1.37 x 0.98 x 0.39 in.)
  • Offers cost and space savings in comparison to using two separate magnetic sensors with simple channels
  • Can be used for linear displacement measurement (in combination with the MB320/1 magnetic tape) or for angle and speed detection (in combination with different SIKO rings)
  • Features IP67 safety rating
  • Wide operating temperature range from -40-85 C (-40-185 F)
  • Enables use in extreme conditions through resistance to negative temperatures and condensation, and even extreme solar radiation
  • Resistant to dust, chips, oils, grease, and moisture
  • Open, contact-free measuring system
  • Provides accuracy to 2 mm (0.08 in.)
  • Repeatability of +/- 1 increment (linear +/- 0.0125 mm)
  • Available with German plug
