Fast, Compact Encoder

Wachendorff Automation has extended the absolute encoder series WDGA by the industrial Ethernet interface Profinet-IRT.

"With its new WDGA58F design, Wachendorff has constructed the world's smallest design in an axial and radial direction," said a company spokesperson. "That saves valuable installation space and can therefore be crucial in new or refined machines, as the trend towards ever more compact systems is continuing. Despite this unique compact design, the high bearing loads ensure tremendous durability and maximum service life."

The Profinet encoders from Wachendorff have a minimum bus cycle time of 125 µs.

In the single-turn area, with QuattroMag technology, the encoder provides a resolution of up to 16 bit, a precision of +/- 0.0878° (12 bit), a repeat accuracy of +/- 0.0878° (12 bit) and internal dynamics of 50 µs. "In the area of the multi-turn, the Profinet encoders from Wachendorff come with maintenance-free and space-saving EnDra technology," said the spokesperson.

The absolute encoders WDGA with magnetic scanning can be used in numerous applications, in which only absolute encoders based on optical principles could be used up until now.

Plant manufacturers and mechanical engineers also can benefit from the modular principle utilized by Wachendorff Automation, in conjunction with the strictly applied LeanQ philosophy.
