AFS/AFM60S Pro Multiturn Absolute Encoder

The AFS/AFM60S Pro Multiturn Absolute Encoder is an absolute encoder for functional safety. It meets the very stringent test criteria according to IEC 61800-5-3 and is a certified safety product up to SIL3/PL e. The absolute encoder supports the safety functions by IEC 61800-5-2 and impresses in particular with its safe positioning function. Thanks to the high enclosure rating and large temperature range, the AFS/AFM60S Pro can be used in harsh environments. With its SSI and sin/cos interface, it can be easily integrated into a range of different controls. In doing so, singleturn resolution, counting direction and other parameters can be adapted individually. The integrated error memory detects important ambient data which provides support during installation and maintenance.
