Motor Feedback of the Latest Generation
The Wachendorff kit offers clear advantages compared to resolvers, magnetic sensors with backup batteries and encoder kits with optical scans and gearboxes.
Due to the higher level of robustness against vibrations and other environmental stresses as well as the faster assembly, the company Wachendorff is expecting another step of creative destruction, which they already predicted ten years ago with the introduction of the EnDra® technology.
Wachendorff offers two different concepts for this purpose:
• An operational absolute encoder
• Installation kit
Heavy-duty rotary encoders for PROFINET from the modular system
Wachendorff Automation has extended its WDGA absolute rotary encoder series in the PROFINET-IO field with the extremely robust WDGA 58D – designed for heavy-duty applications.
As it has already been implemented for the SSI, CAN, PROFIBUS interfaces, the shaft of PROFINET encoder WDGA 58D can be loaded both radially as well as axially with max. 400 N. This is an absolute peak value and guarantees a long service life.
Fastest and most compact PROFINET encoder in the world
With its new WDGA58F design, Wachendorff has succeeded in constructing the world's smallest design in an axial and radial direction.
The encoders are able to keep pace with the latest PLC technologies thanks to the minimum bus cycle time of 125 µs.
The single-turn area, with innovative QuattroMag® technology, provides highest resolution, precision and internal dynamics.
In the area of the multi-turn, the encoders come with maintenance-free and space-saving EnDra® technology.
Length measurement system LMSMA2x/3x
The positions, speeds and travel lengths of conveyor belts, film and paper webs or cardboard packaging, for example, can be recorded safely and efficiently using the measuring systems from Wachendorff Automation. With the new LMSMA2x and LMSMA3x measuring systems, we meet the highest requirements in an ideal way.
Measuring system LMSLA12 for marking and labeling
The new measuring system LMS LA12 is a perfectly tuned, preassembled complete system for use in the field of marking and labelling.
WDGI encoder… the new incremental industry standard
Wachendorff Automation has completely revised the incremental encoders of the WDG series, which are based on the 58 mm design size industry standard. This can only mean one thing: WDG has become WDGI.
But it‘s the enhanced benefits for you as a user that really matter. In addition to a modern design, Wachendorff have attached a great deal of importance to improving key technical properties.
Encoder WDGA-DP; Class 1, 2, 3, 4 selectable
For the choice of an absolute PROFIBUS-DP shaft encoder, the user usually has to specify which shaft encoder operating profile is required. However, if the requirements and desired functionalities change in the course of time, a profile change then frequently makes it necessary to replace the existing shaft encoder.
