Minneapolis, Minnesota – SICK, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of sensors, safety systems, machine vision, encoders, and automatic identification solutions for factory, logistics, and process automation, has launched the SES/ SEM70/90 motor feedback encoders.

The SES/SEM70/90 are motor feedback systems offered in 25mm and 55mm diameters that use holistic sensing capacitive technology, which makes them unaffected by external influences such as electromagnetic interference and humidity.

The products’ compact design saves space and weight and lowers maintenance costs. In addition, the design gives it high shock and vibration resistance, which makes them more rugged and reliable. The SES/SEM70/90 can be directly mounted onto the shaft without additional mounting tools for quick installation and makes transmission components, such as timing belts or couplings unnecessary.

In addition, the SES/SEM70/90 have single and multiturn versions available. The mechanical multiturn function takes additional revolution measurements without the need for additional components such as external batteries and cables. The mechanical aspect eliminates loss of the absolute position due to a dead battery.
