Product Details Supplier Info More products

Variohm Eurosensor has released a range of high-resolution single/multiturn absolute rotary encoders from Wachendorff Automation.

The WDGA series features an on-board 32-bit processor and full CANopen interface that handles the conversion of the encoder’s rugged magnetic-position technology to output 4096 steps per rev (12-bit) at rates up to 1Mbaud and with a multi-turn capacity of 131072 revolutions (17-bit).

The WDGA series is ideal for space-limited applications as a feedback device for positioning systems that require long life and low maintenance.

The WDGA is built for maximum resilience and compactness with a nominal 36mm diameter aluminium housing and stainless-steel shaft with dual low-friction precision bearing support.

Protection rating is to IP67, with shaft sealing to IP65 (optional IP67).

Operating temperature range is -40C to +80C.

Mounting alternatives are via standard 36mm diameter synchro/resolver flange mount, a 58mm diameter clamping flange or 6mm diameter blind hollow shaft.

Maximum speed for the clamping flange version is 12000 rev/min.

The extensive CANopen functionality includes a DS301 communication profile and DS-406 device profile.

Position speed and acceleration output is included along with work-area supervision, encoder cam and scaling capability plus comprehensive diagnostics.
