BOGEN Electronic GmbH

Small, economical absolute magnetic encoder AKS17 for linear and rotary measurement

Whether it is positioning, controlling or monitoring within the automation system - the basis for automation technology is always a highly accurate and reliable measuring technology. If it is used to control motors, to determine the position of axes, or to measure robotic position BOGEN offers the right magnetic measuring solution for all applications.

As in previous years, BOGEN will again be represented as an exhibitor at SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg/Germany. You will find us in hall 4A, stand no. 445.

One of the products BOGEN will exhibit at the SPS trade show is the absolute encoder AKS17. With the AKS17 linear absolute measurement applications can be implemented from 100 mm up to 3 m in length with a resolution < 1 µm. For rotary applications diameters from 100 mm up to 1 m lead to a resolution of up to 24 bits. The high resolution allows to use magnetic encoders where other absolute measurement solutions are too expensive to implement. With this variability the AKS17 and its corresponding scales can be used in nearly any automation application where absolute measurement is necessary.

The size of the AKS17 is 28 mm in length, 16 mm width and a height of either 3.4 mm or 6.6 mm. Due to these dimensions the AKS17 can be implemented even in automation applications which require a space-saving measurement system. For detailed information on the AKS17 you can download the technical datasheet.
