Wachendorff announced its WDGA 58F absolute magnetic encoder that delivers a minimum bus cycle time of 125 μs for high speed motion synchronization for PLCs.
This compact absolute magnetic encoder measures only 58 mm in diameter and features single- plus multi-turn functionality and the patented magnetic scanning principle that offers high-precision position and velocity measurement with enhanced durability and long life, without the use of wear-prone gears or batteries. The operating temperature range is from -40 °C to +85 °C.
The WDGA is available with a numerous mounting and interfacing options, including CANopen, SSI, RS485, J1939 and PROFIBUS.
The -58F PROFINET IRT version includes a 16 bit single-turn QuattroMag® technology resolution and EnDra® technology multi-turn capability to 43 bits. This translates to an angular accuracy and repeat accuracy of ± 0.0878° (≤12 bit).
Programmable parameters include steps or counts per revolution, presets, scale and count direction as well as MRP (Media Redundancy Protocol) specific values for PROFINET IRT to ensure safe operational use.
The WDGA-58F features a clamping flange mount with a choice of 6, 8 or 10 mm shaft diameters (plus a 3/8» option) and is one of five PROFINET IRT models offering mechanical mounting options including synchro flange, hollow bore and other clamping flange variants.
