The NEW Model A58SB absolute bus encoder
Single or multi-turn absolute shaft encoder | ∅ 58 mm (2.28") | CANopen® or SSI communications.THE MODEL A58SB ABSOLUTE ENCODER is designed for harsh factory and plant floor environments. Heavy-duty, rugged and reliable, this shaft absolute encoder is available in both single and multi-turn resolution. As an absolute encoder, it is especially suited to applications where an encoder needs to retain position information after power-off scenarios.
“In any type of machinery that has a time-consuming positioning routine – an example would be a satellite dish – an absolute encoder is ideal,” explains Sarah Walter, electrical engineer and EPC Sales Engineer. “With an absolute encoder, the controller has precise motion feedback about the position of the equipment, without needing to re-home during every start-up. Requiring the equipment to always re-home consumes valuable uptime. With absolute positioning, the controller ‘knows’ exactly where the machine is at all times, even after a power cycle.”
