Absolute angle encoders have integral bearings, hollow shafts, and connect to Fanuc controls. Heidenhain’s RCN 2000, 5000, and 8000 series have diagnostic functions, plug-in cables with a quick disconnect at the encoder, and a variety of hollow shaft diameters. The encoders permit positive fastening, the company says.
Compatible with the EnDat interface, the company says the encoders now work with the Fanuc interface, making it possible to obtain position and speed control in more rotational axes applications, such as on rotary tables, tilting axes, and direct drives.
