The NEW Model A58SB encoder is designed for harsh factory and plant floor environments. Heavy-duty, rugged, and reliable, this absolute shaft encoder is available in both single and multi-turn resolution. This range is ideal for systems which need exact position information to prevent damage to machinery and its operators. This is also particularly valuable during power loss when the absolute encoder will maintain its value without being powered so any movement during the loss of power is tracked and retained for immediate transmission once power is restored. With CANopen® or SSI communications protocols.
