Specially designed for use in mobile applications IFM Electronic the rugged and compact RM9000 multi-turn encoder. It transmits a resolution of 24 bit via CAN interface with 4096 steps at 4096 revolutions. The gearless system uses the Wiegand effect to obtain the position values without battery backup in the event of power failure and to pass the exact position to the controller without homing.
Data transfer and parameterization are quick and easy via CAN bus via the integrated 5-pin M12 connector. The maximum mechanical speed is 6000 min-1.
Harsh environmental requirements are covered by the high degree of protection IP 68 / IP 69K and the requirements according to e1 type approval. Thus, the encoder can be used, for example, in the field of mobile equipment outside. With a diameter of 36,5 mm and a housing length of just 57 mm, the encoder can be easily mounted even in confined installation situations.
