Azimuth motor control

Encoders used on azimuth motors should above all be rugged and precise. The AFS/AFM60 absolute encoder is ideally suited for this task. It quickly measures the position and speed of the motor with high precision.

  • Following product families can be used
    • High-resolution absolute encoder with up to 30 bits (AFM60) or 18 bits (AFS60)
    • Face mount flange, servo flange, blind hollow shaft or through hollow shaft
    • SSI, SSI + incremental or SSI + sin/cos interface
    • Resolution, offset, etc. can be programmed (depending on the type)
    • Connectivity: M12 or M23 male connector or cable connection
    • Enclosure rating: IP67 (housing), IP65 (shaft)
    • Operating temperature: –40 °C ... +100 °C (depending on the type)
    • 36 mm absolute encoder with max. 26 bits (singleturn: 14 bits, multiturn: 12 bits)
    • Face mount/servo flange, blind hollow shaft
    • Rotatable male connector or cable connection
    • IO-Link, CANopen, SSI, SAE J1939 interface with programmable parameterization
    • Diagnostic functions
    • Stainless steel (Inox versions)
    • Enclosure rating up to IP67 or IP69K
