Absolute rotary encoder series expanded with synchronous serial interface feature
Heidenhain is expanding the range of their 1000 series of absolute rotary encoders with devices that feature a synchronous serial interface (SSI). The ECN 1013, EQN 1025, ROC 1013 and ROQ 1025 encoders with SSI interface have a diameter of 35 mm. The 1000 series is designed to measure absolute position in different machines and devices with limited installation space. The encoders are well suited for a variety of different applications including antenna technology, driverless transport systems (DTS), logistics applications, machine building, medical technology, and packaging machines.
In addition to an SSI resolution of 13 bits singleturn and 12 bits multiturn, the additions to the 1000 series absolute rotary encoders also provide external interpolation of the 1 Vpp output signals. These encoders also offer 512 signal periods per revolution, an extended power-supply range from 4.75 V to 30 V, and inputs for programming the direction of rotation and setting the zero position of the absolute position value. The encoders are available in 6 mm blind hollow shaft versions, which include a stator coupling for plane surfaces or in a 4 mm solid shaft version with a synchro flange.
