Ø70mm absolute encoder


The AN is a high-resolution, singleturn absolute encoder with a 22 Bit BiSS C interface. The encoder consists of several optical reflectance sensors arranged at an angle of 180 degrees to each other. This allows to eliminate mechanical errors in the application, such as the runout of the measured shaft, by using subsequent electronics.

This is just an example of a specific tailor-made encoder kit, but there can be numerous variations with different interfaces, mechanical, electrical adjustments, etc. The client would have to cover the non-recurring engineering (NRE) cost for designing and manufacturing the encoder kit depending on the complexity of adjustments needed for the application.

Note: Please consult beforehand to confirm specific adjustments and capabilities.
