The ZDH Series of sensors are heavy-duty,
extremely rugged, reliable, yet compact
encoders designed for harsh factory and plant
floor environments. These encoders are flange
mount and conform to NEMA 4, and 13 (IP66)
Typical applications include motion control
feedback, machine control, process
control, elevator controls, conveyors, textile
equipment, robotics and food processing.
See SPECS above for full specifications and additional information.
The ZDH Series of sensors have open
collector outputs. An open collector output
brings the uncommitted collector of the
encoder switching device to the external
world. Because the collector element is not
associated with the sensor supply voltage,
the sensor output collector may be “pulled
up” to external voltages different than the
encoder supply voltage (40 Vdc maximum).
NPN open collector outputs are current
sinking devices. An output signal will not
be generated unless a pull-up resistor is
connected from the open-collector to the
positive side of an external supply. The same
supply can be used for powering the unit and
for the pull-up resistor.
