ACURO® - AC58 EtherCAT Absolute Encoder
Hot. Cold. Shock. Vibration.
Customized, high-resolution absolute encoders with muscle.
We all know that no two industrial applications are alike. That’s why the Hengstler AC58 absolute encoder is available with an incredible array of different options and features, including 22-bit single-turn resolution. If our standard variants don’t meet your needs, then Hengstler is able to offer custom versions to fulfill your requirements. Extended temperature range, “Best in Class” shock and vibration ratings, and custom shaft sizes and shapes are just a few of the features we’ve provided our customers recently. This flexibility makes the Hengstler AC58 one of the most versatile encoders on the market, in addition to being one of the most robust.
Now the AC58 product line has been expanded by the addition of the popular EtherCAT interface. Use of systems employing this open, high performance Ethernet-based system continues to grow rapidly. By offering the AC58 with EtherCAT, users can now integrate one of the best absolute encoders on the market with virtually any system using the EtherCAT interface. This simplifies the design process and ensures reliable communications.
Some of the key product features include:
- Single- plus Multi-turn resolution up to 32 bits
- Cycle time of 62.5 µs
- Diagnostic LEDs
- Programmable resolution, presets, offset, direction, warning positions, speed scaling, acceleration scaling, speed limits, and temperature limits
- Outputs of speed, acceleration, operating time and temperature in addition to position
