Rotary Optical Encoders
for Precise Motion Sensing

RCML 15 Selection guide

A particularly flat-profile and light alternative to the R35i available in the RENCO product line is the RCML15 rotary encoder. It can be used for the same application areas, but thanks to its low profile with a height of only 8.9 mm, it can be used especially in applications with critical installation conditions and limited space. In addition to its very flat design, the RENCO RCML15 offers the performance potential of a modern rotary encoder. This includes a resolution of 5000 signals per revolution, commutation signals U, V, and W, and an operating temperature range of –30 °C to +100 °C.

The RCML15 also features a patented slide lock mechanism for simple, self-centering mounting.
