Voted by the visitors of the SPS IPC Drives, Turck’s contactless inductive encoder RI360P-QR24 has won the Automation Award 2013 for the most innovative new development in the field of automation technology. The prize is awarded annually by the magazine elektro Automation. A jury of experts from the congress-committee SPS IPC Drives, VDMA, ZVEI and the editorial office of elektro Automation has first nominated a top-10 list. From these ten proposals the visitors could select their favourite. We would like to thank all the participants, who voted for our new encoder series.

With the RI360P-QR24, Turckoffers a non-contact inductive universal encoder with high resolution, wear-free operation, which is at the same time immune to magnetic fields. The sensor and the positioning element of the encoder are fully encapsulated and therefore designed as two independent and fully sealed units that work together without contact. Any vibration or shock from the shaft is therefore not passed on to the sensor. This makes the RI360P-QR24 a superior sensor compared to both optical and magnetic encoders. Thanks to its high degree of protection to IP69K and over 18-bit resolution, machine downtimes and maintenance times resulting from encoder wear are from now on a thing of the past, even with high-precision and high-speed applications.

Turckdeveloped a revolutionary parameterization and mounting concept for the encoder. This turns the RI360P-QR24 into a universal encoder for any standard industrial application. Users can parameterize the device either as an incremental, multi-turn or single-turn encoder. This variant allows the user to also set output signals, switch points and measuring ranges individually via IO Link. Moreover, Turckis offering a high-resolution variant with an SSI output, a Modbus and voltage/current version, as well as an encoder compliant with the e1 specification, for use on mobile machines. The mounting concept of the encoder also extends its application range: Adapter rings enable the encoder to be fitted on all standard shafts with diameters up to 20 millimeters.

The innovative character of the QR24, meeting the expectations of our customers, is proven by the fact, that it won the Automation Award 2013. A jury of experts from the congress-committee SPS IPC Drives, VDMA, ZVEI and the editorial office of the trade journal electro Automation has first nominated a top-10 list. From these ten proposals the SPS IPC Drives visitors could select their favourite. We would like to thank all the participants, who voted for our new encoder series.
