accuracies of up to ±2 arc seconds, absolute angle encoders
provide the absolute position value immediately after switch-on
or after a disturbance — without prior axis movement.
The encoder photoelectrically scans pure binary patterns on a
glass graduated disk to determine the absolute position value.
An RCN absolute angle encoder features an integral stator
coupling which, in comparison with encoders with solid shaft and
separate coupling, provides the following advantages:
angular acceleration of the shaft the coupling takes up
only the torque resulting from bearing friction
An IP 64 degree of protection
enables RCN angle encoders to withstand the harsh environments
typically found around machine tools.
In addition, the RCN 220 and RCN 723 are mechanically compatible
with the RON 200 and RON 7x6/RON 8x6 series incremental
