Rotary Encoders with Increased Temperature Range


Towcester, UK - Reflecting the total confidence in the quality of its wide range of WDG encoders and systems, German manufacturer Wachendorff Automation GmbH has extended its warranty from 3 to 5 years as well as increase the working temperature range of all WDG encoders to those used for military specifications.


Wachendorff, represented exclusively in the UK by measurement and sensor specialist Variohm EuroSensor, saw the warranty expansion as a logical extension to the positive feedback and extremely favourable returns statistics from many satisfied users.


WDG products include incremental and absolute encoders, guided belt measuring systems and draw wire type linear measurement encoders. In particular, WDG series encoders cover incremental shaft and hollow shaft encoders from 24 mm to 145 mm in diameter with standard quadrature resolution up to 25000 pulses per rev. WDG series absolute encoders include single- and multi-turn variants with up to 18-bit resolution and output options of SSI, CANopen and Profibus-DP in both optical and highly robust magnetic designs. A wide and flexible choice of mounting styles include synchro-flange, clamp ring and screw-flange mechanical interfacing.


The decision to increase the standard temperature rating places the rugged and durable standard WDG encoder product line in operating temperatures from -40 C to +80 C with storage up to +100C.


All Wachendorff WDG encoder products and systems are characterised by high reliability and resistance to vibration with IP68 rated housings available for the toughest of environments. Application areas for the product includes cranes, lifts, road marking machinery, agricultural and construction vehicles.


Variohm EuroSensor provides complete sales and technical support across the full range of Wachendorff products with stock delivery available on many standard products and the ability to coordinate special custom encoder requirements with Wachendorff GmbH.
