Baumer Electric Introduces 36 Bit Multi-turn Dignalizer

Highest Resolution Absolute Encoder Available

Southington, Conn. - July 31, 2002.... Baumer Electric has introduced the Dignalizer, an innovative absolute optical rotary encoder featuring 36 bit resolution in Multi-Turn configuration. The highest resolution encoder presently available on the market, the Dignalizer is capable of measuring 262,144 pulses per revolution over 262,144 revolutions, allowing the encoder to track over 68 billion pulses with unique binary codes.

Baumer's Dignalizer employs a unique operating principle that eliminates the bulky and breakage-prone traditional gear system used to track revolutions and allows for exceptional miniaturization of this encoder, which measures only 58 mm in diameter and 55 mm in depth and weighs just 370g. Internal monitoring electronics dramatically decrease the output lag experienced with other high-resolution encoders, allowing for extremely accurate monitoring of the rotary process as fast as 6000 rpm.

The Dignalizer supports most major bus system outputs, including SSI, CANopen, DeviceNet and Profibus, as well as RS-485 outputs. Offering both cable and radial connector configurations and featuring 12 mm hollowshaft and various industry-standard shaft sizes, the Dignalizer is well suited to a wide array of high-precision applications. It features 5OG Shock protection and IP 64 sealing, and will operate optimally in temperatures from -20 to 85°C. The encoder is also available in an 18 Bit Single-Turn version.
