Absolute encoders

Compact, universal, intuitive

Your Benefits

  • Intuitive configuration of the measuring range directly on the device using membrane keyboard (teach-in function) saves time and requires no special expertise.
  • The compact size (36-mm format) allows the encoder to be used in confined spaces and thus provides greater freedom for development and machine design.
  • The analog interfaces (current/voltage) offer a low-cost solution for detecting the position and path, and thereby help to reduce overall system costs.


Compact, universal, intuitive

The ACS36 (singleturn) and ACM36 (multiturn) encoder families have an analog interface with a maximum resolution of up to 3723 steps (for singleturn and multiturn). Using the teach-in function on the membrane keyboard, the measuring range can be intuitively programmed directly on the device in just a few clicks. A current signal of 4-20 mA or a voltage signal of 0-10 V is output depending on the device version.
