Wachendorff’s WDGA58F ODVA-certified encoder designed for harsh environment.
Wachendorff has added the WDGA58F encoder, with the EtherNet/IP protocol, to its range of Ethernet-based encoders. Certified by the ODVA, the compact encoder has a sensor minimized to an installation depth of 46.5mm. Its resolution in single and multi-turn can be individually configured via an integrated web server (single-turn 16 bit, multi-turn 43 bit). It has an operating temperature range from -40 °C up to +85 °C, shock 1,000 m/s² or vibration 50 m/s² at 10-2000 Hz, making it suited to harsh industrial environments. The devices with hollow end shafts eliminate the need for additional couplings; models with shafts are compatible with bearing loads of up to 400N.
