Absolute encoders generate information about position, angle, and rotation counts in type-specific angle steps. For this, a unique code pattern is assigned to each angle increment. The number of code patterns available per revolution determines the resolution. Each code pattern forms a unique reference, and is therefore an absolute position. There is therefore no need for a reference run after switching on. A singleturn encoder measures the absolute position within a revolution. A multiturn encoder not only provides the position within a revolution but also the number of revolutions.

An active web server is used to configure absolute encoders with Ethernet interfaces from a standard web browser on a PC, notebook or tablet computer. The web server function is currently available for AFS/AFM60 EtherNet/IP. Preparations are underway for this function to be rolled out for AFS/AFM60 PROFINET and EtherCAT.

Position, angle and speed monitoring for rotary or linear encoders using LEDs, code patterns and photodiodes. The tick marks (on incremental encoders) or codes (on absolute encoders) are inscribed as digital patterns on a glass, metal or plastic disc and are scanned using a light source (light emitting diode) and photo-diodes. Encoders with optical scanning typically have higher resolutions than encoders that use magnetic scanning.

Safety encoders are used in functional safety technology. They generate information about position, angle, and revolution counts. Rotary safety encoders are divided into incremental and absolute encoders. When these encoders are combined with safe controls, the safety function can be implemented. These encoders are certified safety products and are characterized by safety technology parameters such as safety integrity level (SIL) or performance level (PL).
