AksIMTM is a non-contact high performance off-axis absolute rotary encoder designed for integration into space-constrained applications. A hollow ring, true absolute functionality and high speed operation make this encoder suitable for many applications.
The AksIMTM board level encoder is specifically designed for integration into applications where there is no space for the classic AksIMTM readhead with T-shaped housing. An external case (provided by the customer) must serve as environmental protection of the encoder.
The board level encoder system consists of an axially magnetised ring and a readhead board.
The encoder has a built-in advanced self-monitoring function, continually checking several internal parameters. Error reporting, warnings and other status signals are available on all digital interfaces and are visualised with the on-board LED.
The encoder system is suitable for use in industrial and medical applications. A typical application is a robotic arm joint with a cable feed running through the ring or a precision gearbox where the ring is attached onto the main transmission shaft. Custom readhead board design service for OEM integration is also available.
