Life_Testers

The image above shows accelerated life testers for rotary encoders, both optical and Hall effect technology. Unlike some competitors, the mechanical and electrical life specifications for Grayhill encoders define each cycle as a full rotation of the shaft and the return to its original position. These testers are used to test millions of cycles in a relatively short period of time.

Other mechanical rigs test:

  • Vibration
  • Front and side imapct
  • Abrasion on actuator
