Overview

The AksIM™ is a non-contact high performance off-axis absolute rotary encoder designed for applications with limited installation space. The compact, low profile readhead detects and evaluates the magnetic field of a thin, axially magnetized ring.

Features

  • Resolution to 20 bits
  • BiSS, SSI, PWM, USB, SPI and serial RS422
  • Overall system thickness only 7 mm
  • Integrated status LED

Benefits

  • True absolute, single track
  • Non contact, no hysteresis
  • High speed
  • Low profile
  • High degree of IP protection
  • Custom ASIC based magnetic sensor
  • Built-in self-monitoring
  • Corrosion resistant magnetic ring
