Intelligent diagnostic functions and rapid data transfer: High-resolution AFS/AFM60 EtherCAT® absolute encoders represent high-precision measurement of absolute position and speed in the area of industrial automation. Comprehensive functions for diagnosing parameters such as temperature or operating time and early error detection increase network reliability. Various configuration options, such as modification of resolution, rotational direction or unit of speed measurement simplify installation and enable customized adjustment to each application. Their compact design also makes AFS/AFM60 EtherCAT® absolute encoders suitable for applications in confined spaces. Embedded switch technology ensures maximum system and equipment availability and, therefore, helps increase productivity.
