With a high resolution of 18 bits (AFS60) or 30 bits (AFM60) and a large selection of programmable parameters, the AFS60 absolute singleturn encoder and the AFM60 absolute multiturn encoder set new standards when it comes to rotary encoders. The high resolution combined with the high IP protection class enables use in a multitude of industrial applications. Both encoders are equipped with the SSI interface while the AFM60 is also available with the SSI + Incremental and SSI + Sin/Cos combined interfaces. A shaft bearing distance of 30 mm means the AFS60/AFM60 product family has significantly better rotation accuracy than encoders with blocked ball bearings. Yet despite their large bearing distance, the AFS60/AFM60 have a compact design. The AFS and AFM60 SSI can be programmed via the same PC-based programming tool (PGT-08-S) or the hand-held PGT-10-Pro programming tool.
