Are these Litton encoders ok to re-use?
« on: April 19, 2011, 10:38:19 PM »
Ia a tearing into my Hurco and it is gutted in the drive side cabinet. After taking the covers off of the encoders, they don't look too bad. I was expecting oil contamination and maybe some dust/shavings, etc. They are super clean.

MY first intent was to install new encoders. Eliminate any old bad parts that might fail or have problems now when at operating temperature.

 Would these old ones be sufficient with  the Dugong drives and Mach 3?

Would it be better to trash these and not look back?


Thanks for the info.

Everything is bio-degradable if you run over it enough with a lawnmower.

I guess that worked. I've never posted pics on this board before. ;)

I would use the encoders that are there if the count is ok and the output type is also compatible. No point in wasting money and these encoders will likely be a lot better quality than the normal ones people retrofit.
