Take a look at our animations for the steel, crane and port technology, and mining sectors! Click through our animations from a rough overview to the specific mounting location of an encoder and get direct suggestions for suitable encoder solutions.
The robust multiturn absolute encoders AM… 40 and AM…H 40 can be deployed in a wide variety of applications to detect positions and rotational speeds in rolling and steel mills, in mining operations as well as in ports and crane systems. They provide precise information about the position of the shaft and the number of revolutions. The multiturn absolute encoders are used, for example, in hoist gear applications to determine the exact position at all times.
Additional encoders can be easily attached to the second shaft end.
The multiturn absolute encoders of the AM… 40 series are characterized by their thick-walled, robust housing, which very safely protects the state-of-the-art electronics.
High speeds up to 6000 rpm (solid shaft) and 4000 rpm (hollow shaft)
Encapsulated electronics protected even when terminal box is open
All screwed connections are vibration resistant
Positive connection with feather key / feather keyway
