The special features of the AR63 include not only a robust housing but also large dimensioned, block-type ball bearings. Even high axial and radial forces acting in the axial plane of the shaft of this rotary encoder will not cause it to miss a beat. The AR63 will cope with extreme acceleration, marked changes in climatic conditions and even work normally under water.
This means it is predestined for use in wind turbines, ships and commercial vehicles just as much as in presses, wood-processing machines or stone masonry. In terms of its electrical design. The interfaces available are SSI, BiSS, CANopen and analogue. The encoder is available with resolutions from up to 12 bits as a single-turn unit and 16 bits as a multi-turn device.
The special features of the AR63 not only comprise its particularly rugged enclosure, but also generously dimensioned, rigid ball-bearings. Capable of withstanding even high axial and radial loads on its shaft axis, this encoder type easily achieves a mechanical life of 10 9 rotations at a permanent radial load of 300 N and simultaneously, an axial load of 300N.
The AR63 was designed to easily withstands highest accelerations, extreme climatic fluctuations and even underwater operation.
In this way, our rugged absolute encoder is ideally suitable for applications in wind farms, marine or utility vehicle applications, as well as for use in presses or wood and stone processing machinery: applications where high resistance to harsh environments and maximum reliability are required at the same time. Available interfaces are SSI, CANopen and Analog (0 … 10 V or 4 … 20 mA).
