HENGSTLER's ACURO absolute rotary encoders offer innovative engineering, easy operation and optimised functional dependability. The platform-based concept enables particularly compact construction and modular internal components. As a result of this sophisticated modular system, HENGSTLER is in a position always to provide the right variant for applications involving motor feedback and automation. Equipped with an open BiSS sensor interface, these rotary encoders are ideal for all requirements and prepared for the future.

The AC58 series combines a series of absolute rotary encoders with optical scanning for numerous fields of application. The 58 mm encoders are available as solid-shaft or hollow-shaft models and meet the requirements for nearly every demanding industrial application and use involving motor feedback. As single-turn and multi-turn versions, these encoders achieve a resolution of up to 34 bits (22 bits single-turn, 12 bits multi-turn, depending upon interface). Apart from connections by SSI/ BiSS, many other interfaces such as EtherCAT, Profibus, CANopen, CANlayer2, DeviceNet, Interbus and SUCOnet are available.
In the development of equipment for use in hazardous environments, selecting the right sensor plays a crucial role. First and foremost, explosion protection of the sensor itself is critical. Additional harsh requirements, such as the ability to withstand severe shock and vibration, and the need for corrosion resistance due to the working atmosphere, are placed on the encoder by the application itself. And, of course, an accurate and high-resolution sensor signal is required in spite of all other demands.
