Detection of slewing ring position

In order to realize semi-automated machine processes it is necessary to measure the position of the upper to the lower carriage with an absolute encoder at the slewing ring. With its very compact size and the rugged design, the AHS/AHM36 absolute encoder is perfect for this task. Thanks to the absolute position detection, high resolution and high repeatability, it can also realize repeating work processes.
