Absolute encoders

Compact, robust, powerful

Your Benefits

  • Maximum system throughput, even under extreme ambient conditions
  • Reduced maintenance costs due to wear-free magnetic singleturn and multiturn scanning
  • Space-saving and cost-efficient design - the best solution, particularly when installation space is limited
  • High productivity thanks to fast communication and position calculation
  • Immune to contamination and condensation - ideal for tough ambient conditions
  • High performance at a cost-efficient price


Compact, robust, powerful

The A3M60 is an extremely rugged absolute multiturn encoder inside a 60 mm housing. Maximum reliability even in the harshest of ambient conditions is attained by means of magnetic scanning, both with singleturn and multiturn detection. New singleturn technology combines the durability of a magnetic sensor with high resolutions, previously only possible with optical systems. The innovative, gearless multiturn technology keeps the number of moving components on the A3M60 to a minimum. This results in a long service life with low maintenance costs and consequently optimum system availability. The highly compact technology in single and multiturn detection provides the user a space-saving and cost-efficient solution. Together with the integrated PROFIBUS interface, the A3M60 is particularly suited for applications where installation space is tight.
