Absolute Multi- and Singleturn Encoder WDGA 58D

WDGA 58D EtherCAT absolute encoder

For more than 30 years, Wachendorff Automation has been developing and manufacturing systems and encoders for worldwide use in a wide variety of applications. More than 2,500 realized customer variants show our great flexibility.

You receive our encoders and systems with a guarantee of 5 years - this is unique worldwide!

We have extended our absolute encoder series WDGA with the Industrial Ethernet interface EtherCAT. With our EtherCAT encoder WDGA 58D with bus cover, we have designed the shaft load capacity for radial and axial 400 N max. Through extensive environmental simulation tests during developement, Wachendorff ensures an above-average Service

In addition to the outstanding mechanical properties, the latest electronic components and the latest communication and encoder profiles are used. These very robust absolute encoders with magnetic scanning allow use in areas where previously only absolute encoders with an optical principle could be used due to the new high-precision and highly dynamic technologies.
