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)
    • Connection technology: M12, M23 male connector or cable connection
    • Enclosure rating: IP67 (housing), IP65 (shaft)
    • Operating temperature: –40 °C to +100 °C (depending on the type)
