Absolute encoder kits are ideally suited to the acquisition and feedback of the absolute rotor position to the motor control system. With the new MiniCODER, Lenord + Bauer is setting standards in absolute magnetic kit measuring systems.
The design without bearings is extremely long-lived and acquires the absolute position at rotational speeds up to 20,000 min-1. As such the new encoder kit can also be used in highly dynamic drives. Dust, humidity and oil do not affect the magnetic measuring system. This feature makes the MiniCODER a specialist for harsh industrial environments.
Due to the modular construction the system covers a wide range of shaft diameters, which significantly simplifies adaptation to the motor.
The MiniCODER provides unambiguous position values at any angular position via an SSI or BISS interface. There is also an incremental signal for the rotational speed measurement. The absolute position is available immediately after switch on, which makes a reference search routines unnecessary. Furthermore, the encoder kit undertakes a self-calibration; in this way the measuring system is also robust in relation to mechanical tolerances.
Your advantages at a glance
The magnetic position acquisition is contactless; this makes the absolute MiniCODER extremely durable and reduces operating costs.
One sensor can be used for different size measuring scales. The measuring scale is flexibly adjusted to the diameter. This reduces development costs and simplifies your component management.
Oil, dust or dirt do not impair the magnetic measuring system. The robust MiniCODER thus ensures smooth operation.
The MiniCODER without bearings is indestructible. It is maintenance free since it does not contain any moving parts.
