Programmable Singleturn and Multiturn Absolute Encoders


SICK announces the launch of its AFS Singleturn and AFM Multiturn Absolute Encoders with SSI (Synchronous Serial Interface) output. These encoders feature a new, revolutionary bearing design and metal code disc that extends the life of each encoder, helping to reduce replacement costs. The AFS60 singleturn version can be programmed to accommodate any value from 1 to 262,144 counts per revolution - something no other encoder can do. These compact encoders are ideal for applications that require precise and reliable position accuracy in robotic, mobile vehicle, packaging and general manufacturing environments.

SICK is the only company to offer a high-resolution absolute encoder, with 18 bit resolutions on the AFS60 and 30 bit resolutions on the AFM60. The new AFS60 and AFM60 encoders are ideal for reducing the number of encoders customers need in inventory and enabling the user to create custom resolutions at the click of a button.
