The MNI40 is a magnetic, noncontact incremental rotary encoder with intelligent diagnostics that delivers 3,600-pulses/rev resolution at 30,000  rev/min and operates –40 to100°C.
The encoder features a two-color LED display that provides information on proper assembly, reducing installation time and test-equipment requirements.

The encoder uses a zero-contact (magnetic) connection between its sensor and magnetic wheel, which lets it measure speed without ball bearings, eliminating bearing wear due to mechanical forces. The sensor’s electronics are housed in a IP67-rated enclosure and an elastomer-coated magnetic wheel, preventing damage from water and oil.
