Product Details Supplier Info More products

Variohm Eurosensor is offering the Wachendorff WDGA series of Canopen absolute magnetic rotary encoders for applications that require high-accuracy measurement and extreme durability.

The encoders feature 12-bit single-turn and 12-bit and 18-bit multi-turn resolution.

The WDGA uses Wachendorff’s patented Endra technology with an integral 32-bit processor, which assigns a unique coded magnetic signal for each of the individual 4,096 counts per revolution and for each full revolution count without relying on wear-prone gears or limited-life batteries.

As such, the encoder ensures a long life and high levels of reliability, even in arduous conditions, according to the company.

The integral Canopen/CAN interface fully meets CiA DS-301 communication and DS-406 encoder device profiles and transmits position, speed, acceleration, limits and cam switch functions as data objects.

The output can also include scaling for real unit measurement and diagnostics are aided with a red/green light-emitting diode (LED) for fast and effective commissioning and operational status.

The durable encoder has an aluminium housing with a 36mm-diameter synchro/resolver flange mounting with a stainless-steel shaft in solid or blind bore options with dual precision bearing support.

A 58mm-diameter clamping flange is also available.

IP67 protection class is standard with shaft sealing to IP65 (IP67 optional).

The WDGA’s temperature stability is guaranteed from -40C to +80C.

The WDGA series can run continuously at its maximum speed of 12,000rev/min for around 11 years before reaching its counting limit.
