Absolute encoders
AFS/AFM60 Inox

Resistant, precise, programmable

Your Benefits

  • High resistance to environmental influences due to stainless-steel housing
  • IP 67 enclosure rating and shaft sealing ring for optimum tightness
  • High singleturn resolution up to 18 bits (AFS60 Inox) enables use in applications with demanding requirements for measurement accuracy
  • The wide range of mechanical interfaces allows an optimal match between the encoder and the application-specific installation situation
  • Simple mounting thanks to compact dimensions, even in confined spaces
  • Reduces storage costs and downtimes since customers can program the encoder themselves with programming devices PGT-08-S and PGT-10-Pro


Resistant, precise, programmable

With a high resolution of 18 bits (AFS60 Inox) or 30 bits (AFM60 Inox) and a large selection of programmable parameters, the AFS60 Inox absolute singleturn encoder and the AFM60 Inox absolute multiturn encoder set new standards when it comes to stainless-steel encoders.

The high resolution, the high IP enclosure rating, and the stainless-steel housing enable use in applications under harsh ambient conditions. The encoders are equipped with the SSI interface while the AFM60 Inox is also available with the SSI + Incremental and SSI + Sin/Cos combined interfaces. Both encoders can be programmed using the PC-based programming device PGT-08-S or the hand-held programming device PGT-10-Pro.
