Absolute encoders
ACS/ACM36

Your Benefits

  • Intuitive configuration of the measuring range directly on the device using membrane keyboard (teach-in function) saves time and requires no special expertise.
  • The compact size (36-mm format) allows the encoder to be used in confined spaces and thus provides greater freedom for development and machine design.
  • The analog interfaces (current/voltage) offer a low-cost solution for detecting the position and path, and thereby help to reduce overall system costs.

Overview

The ACS36 (singleturn) and ACM36 (multiturn) encoder families have an analog interface with a maximum resolution of up to 3723 steps (for singleturn and multiturn). Using the teach-in function on the membrane keyboard, the measuring range can be intuitively programmed directly on the device in just a few clicks. A current signal of 4-20 mA or a voltage signal of 0-10 V is output depending on the device version.
