Fastest, Most Compact PROFINET Encoder Available

Wachendorff Automation has extended the absolute encoder series WDGA by the Industrial Ethernet interface PROFINET-IRT. With its new WDGA58F design, Wachendorff has succeeded in constructing the world's smallest design in an axial and radial direction. That saves valuable installation space and can therefore be crucial in new or refined machines, as the trend towards ever more compact systems is continuing undiminished. Despite this unique compact design, the high bearing loads ensure tremendous durability and maximum service lives.

The PROFINET encoders from Wachendorff 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 a resolution of up to 16 bit, a precision of +/- 0.0878° (12 bit), a repeat accuracy of +/- 0.0878° (12 bit) and internal dynamics of 50 μs. In the area of the multi-turn, the Profinet encoders from Wachendorff come with maintenance-free and space-saving EnDra technology.
