Fast and Compact PROFINET Encoder

Jan. 25, 2017
Wachendorff says that its WDGA58F is the world's smallest design in an axial and radial direction.

That saves installation space and can be crucial in new or refined machines, as the trend towards ever more compact systems is continuing undiminished. Despite this unique compact design, the high bearing loads ensure durability and maximum service lives. The encoders can keep pace with the latest PLC technologies thanks to the minimum bus cycle time of 125 µs. The single-turn units, with QuattroMag technology, provide a resolution of up to 16 bits, a precision of ±0.0878° (12 bit), a repeat accuracy of ±0.0878° (12 bit) and internal dynamics of 50 µs. The multi-turn versions come with maintenance-free and space-saving EnDra technology. Thanks to these highly accurate and highly dynamic technologies, the absolute encoders with magnetic scanning can be used in numerous applications in which only absolute encoders based on optical principles could be used up until now. Plant manufacturers and mechanical engineers also benefit from the modular principle, in conjunction with the strictly applied LeanQ philosophy.
