Speed and position monitoring of elevator cars with encoders

AFM60 absolute encoders offer a large selection of mechanical interfaces and electrical contacting options. Mounted on a measuring wheel, the encoder transmits absolute position information to the elevator control, which monitors the speed and can precisely position the elevator car.
