Rotary encoders are suitable for measuring the rotation, angular speed, or position of moving parts in a wide range of areas. In comparison to other magnetic encoders the new magnetic encoder family offers unique robustness and precision. They achieve precisions of 1° to 0.1°, singleturn resolutions of up to 16 Bit Singleturn, and a multiturn resolution of up to 39 Bit.
Besides high reliability and a long service life the new magnetic encoder technology makes smaller housings possible. A Wiegand wire for multiturn and Hall sensor for singleturn is included on a single PCB. This enables compact singleturn absolute rotary encoders to be created up to 36 mm housing.
