MA4201 Redundant Encoder
Redundant encoder for positioning purposes. The MA4201 series is a series of encoders that support combinations. One of two incremental encoders that are integrated in one housing. The other option is to integrate an incremental and an absolute encoder that support communication protocols such as SSI, PROFIBUS or CAN. Additional incremental signals can also be provided with TTL or HTL output levels on the absolute encoder. The redundancy makes the MA420 suitable for use in safety-relevant applications.
Properties of the MA4201 redundant encoder
The extremely robust construction and encapsulation of the encoder and features such as a breathable membrane filter and double shaft seal protection enable use in marine or offshore environments. Mines & cranes are two other suitable areas of application for the series.
Mechanically, the MA420 series is based on an 11mm solid shaft with a keyway to prevent slippage. The mounting flange is compatible with earlier tachometer generator interfaces including a B10 mounting flange.
