The AksIM-2 encoder has a built-in advanced self-monitoring function that continuously checks several internal parameters. Error reports, warnings and other status signals are available on all communication interfaces and are with the on-board LED. Redundant readheads consist of two identical, completely independent and electrically isolated readheads. These are suitable for advanced applications that require a higher level of security. This configuration can be used to monitor the encoder position via two independent channels. The difference between the channels is about 180°. Due to the digital barcode magnetization on the ring, the encoder is fully redundant even when using a single ring.


  • Redundant version for higher safety applications
  • Two encoders on the same cable
  • True absolute system
  • Built-in advanced self-monitoring functions
