Hengstler is a leading European manufacturer of industrial components for counting and control applications, such as counters / timers, rotary encoders, industrial and temperature controllers, relays, and printers and cutters.
Hengstler offers a wide range of incremental and absolute encoders that provide reliable performance in challenging environments such as construction machinery, CNC machining, oil and gas, agriculture, mining and more.
HENGSTLER’s ACURO absolute rotary encoders offer innovative engineering, easy operation and optimized functional dependability. The platform-based concept enables particularly compact construction and modular internal components. As a result of this sophisticated modular system,
HENGSTLER is in a position always to provide the right variant for applications involving motor feedback and automation. Equipped with an open BiSS sensor interface, these rotary encoders are ideal for all requirements and prepared for the future.
The AD58 multi-turn absolute encoder is an optical encoder with a multi-turn gear and optical scanning. The mechanical concept is based on a shaft assembly mounted in dual ball-bearings with a flexible torque support. As a result, these encoders are suitable for incorporating in BLDC servo motors and such demanding applications as CNC, precision positioning and high-resolution printing. The encoder is available with resolutions of up to 22 bits single-turn and 12 bits multi-turn.
Fully digital control loop
The new and completely digital OptoAsic technology enables the transition to a truly digital drive system. The conventional absolute encoders still have analog sine wave signals for the feedback of speed and position data. The AD 58, however, provides fully digital position data up to 22 Bit (Single-turn) and 12 Bit (Multiturn) over the BiSS interface with a variable clock rate up to 10 MHz. This corresponds a single-turn resolution of more than 4 million measured steps.
