Pitch motor control

Pitch motor controls reduce the structural strain of rotor blades and mechanics at maximum energy consumption. Knowing the current blade angle position is important for efficient system control. The AFS/AFM60 absolute encoder reliably and precisely measures this position.

  • Following product families can be used
    • High-resolution absolute encoder with up to 30 bits (AFM60) or 18 bits (AFS60)
    • Face mount flange, servo flange, blind hollow shaft or through hollow shaft
    • SSI, SSI + incremental or SSI + sin/cos interface
    • Resolution, offset, etc. can be programmed (depending on the type)
    • Connection technology: M12, M23 male connector or cable connection
    • Enclosure rating: IP67 (housing), IP65 (shaft)
    • Operating temperature: –40 °C to +100 °C (depending on the type)
