Rotary encoder has a high detent force for tactile feedback
Electronic component manufacturer, Bourns, has extended its rotary encoder product range with the Model PEC11H. It is designed for applications that require a rugged menu-select encoder. It has a ball/spring design that provides a strong, positive detent feel. This high force detent feature satisfies demand by end users for more noticeable and smooth tactile feedback in a range of applications that require a rugged menu-select encoder. Example applications include professional audio and lighting, low/medium risk medical, test and measurement and lab equipment, industrial automation controls and consumer white goods.
The PEC11H rotary encoder also features quadrature output with a 100,000 rotational cycle rating and a -25 to +70°C operating temperature range. The encoder is available in various resolutions and knurled and flatted shaft lengths as well as with a momentary push switch option.
The Model PEC11H encoder is RoHS-compliant, has an IP 40 dust seal rating. It is available now.
Bourns manufactures and supplies position and speed sensors, circuit protection solutions, magnetic components, microelectronic modules, panel controls and resistive products.
The company is headquartered in Riverside, California, USA and serves a range of markets, including automotive, industrial, consumer, communications, low-medium risk medical and audio.
