The singleturn AFS60 and the multiturn AFM60 feature an embedded switch functionality that reduces external switching components and re-routes data when cable breaks in the network are detected. The AFS60’s and AFM60’s diagnostic functions include temperature and acceleration monitoring, and a durable metal code disc that is resistant to shock and high temperatures.

These absolute encoders also include a customizable resolution for customer-specific applications using resolution scaling or endless shaft functionality.

With an IP 67/65 protection rating, the AFS60 and AFM60 can be used in a variety of applications that require precise and reliable position accuracy with EtherNet/IP network connectivity. A high degree of accuracy and repeatability make these encoders suitable for motion control, robotics, AGV, packaging, and general manufacturing applications. Face mount, servo flange and blind hollow housings are available.
