Magnetic Ring Encoder
By DE StaffMotion Control Machine Building
HEIDENHAIN’s ECM 2400 encoder provides functional safety for machine tools.
HEIDENHAIN introduced its ECM 2400, an absolute modular magnetic angle encoder designed for machine tool applications. The ECM 2400 is suitable for applications with high rotational speeds and works particularly well on B-axis lathes with motorized milling spindles, or on the A and C axes of milling machines where a large hollow shaft encoder is necessary. The ECM 2400 encoders are available with EnDat 2.2 interface. In conjunction with a safe control, they can be used as single-encoder systems in applications with control category SIL 2 (as per EN 61508) and with Performance Level “d” (as per EN ISO 13849). Existing non-FS interfaces for ECM 2400 encoders includes Fanuc05 and Mit03-4. All of these encoders have an IP67 rating.
