Netzer introduce its VLM-60 multi-turn, hollow shaft absolute rotary encoder. The low profile (<8 mm) encoder features 17-bit single-plus-15-bit multi-turn resolution. The master reads the multi-turn positions from the encoder both at start-up and throughout the operation, resulting in smooth and continuous production, the company says. In case of a power outage or a machine shutdown, the VLM-60 maintains the multi-turn absolute position by utilizing an internal battery or an external power source. Resistant to harsh environmental conditions, the encoder is also immunne to magnetic fields.
