AME 40, AMEH 40

Multiturn absolute encoder with a solid shaft or hollow shaft

A multiturn version of the absolute encoder from Johannes Huebner Giessen is also available. The solid shaft version of the absolute encode AM... 40 is equipped with all customary interfaces, such as EtherCAT or other fieldbus and Industrial Ethernet variants, SSI or a parallel interface and can be supplied with an incremental output, if required. The multiturn version offers a maximum resolution up to 12 bit (number of revolutions: 4096). The absolute encoder AM... 40 multiturn is considered to be the standard version for heavy duty applications. It has a robust aluminium casing and large ball bearings with a high dynamic load rating; the interior space remains sealed even when the terminal box is open. Consequently, it is extremely vibration and shock resistant.

Special features:

  • Heavy duty technology
  • Degree of protection up to IP 66 / IP 67, also suitable for applications in salty environmental conditions
  • Robust aluminium housing with considerable wall thickness
  • Large ball bearings with high dynamic load rating
  • Sealed interior space even with open terminal box
  • Spacious terminal box
  • All screw connections protected against vibrations
  • Form-fit shaft connection by feather key
  • Higher signal quality by long lever torque arms on hollow shaft installations
  • Suitable for DC voltage supply networks
  • Special looper version qualified for applications in most extreme operating and environmental conditions
  • Hollow shaft encoder series 60 provide with B14 flange a solid basis for further attachments
  • Encoders available with 2 desired interfaces (also with parallel interface)
  • Fiber optics signal transmission feasable with converter
  • Hollow shaft versions with insulated bearings on request
  • Accessories as adapter shafts to customer specifications
