ASM36 is the miniature absolute modular encoder designed to be directly integrated into small AC servo motors and DC brushless motors. It offers high resolutions and reliable operation at an economical price.
ASM36 is a high resolution single-turn optical absolute encoder. It is engineered for direct integration into small AC servo motors and DC brushless motors. It can be installed in a variety of drives with different flange sizes (typically from size 40 to size 80) having a 6-mm/0.24” back shaft and a 20-mm/0.79” flange pilot. Unlike conventional encoders it comes in a OEM and ultra compact modular package combining the disk and the circuit that can be easily assembled by the user. Thanks to the supplied mounting tool and the automatic calibration software the assembly process is greatly simplified, thus reducing the time needed for installation and alignment to a few seconds (the measuring system is supplied pre-calibrated).
The electrical interface can be either SSI or BiSS C-mode with a resolution up to 21 bits (2097152 cpr). Zero setting/preset and counting direction input functions along with protection against reverse polarity and short-circuit add plus benefits. Furthermore the use of selected components enables high accuracy rates and an operating temperature range from -40°C to +100°C (-40°F to +212°F). ASM36 is the ideal solution for mass production at low cost in motors for applications such as:
• XY tables
• chip mounters
• sewing machines
• food processing machines
• conveyors and other material handling systems
