A steam sterilizable encoder suitable for medical design applications is now available from maxon motor. ENX EASY can be combined with brushless DC motors and planetary gearheads.

The encoder is available in an incremental (1,024 counts) and absolute version (4,096 steps), both designed for 1,000 autoclave cycles. It can be integrated into the brushless drives ECX 13 and ECX 16 SPEED (up to 120,000 rpm and 104 W) without any increase in length.
