FAULHABER AESL Absolute Encoder

The new AES-4096 L magnetic single-turn absolute encoder is equipped with a Line Driver that eliminates interference during signal transmission. It is thereby possible to position the motor/encoder unit up to five metres away from the controller. The encoder supplies a unique angular value within a motor revolution for each shaft position with a resolution of 4096 steps. The position is available immediately after power on.

The encoder can be combined with brushless DC-motors of the B, BX4 and BP4 series. It transfers the signals using the BiSS-C protocol via an SSI interface. The BiSS protocol is designed for industrial applications in which high transmission speed, flexibility and minimum implementation effort are required.

The AES-4096 L encoder can be used for both speed and motion control as well as for the commutation of the motors. Digital Hall sensors for commutation of the motors are no longer generally needed. With AESL, sine commutation is possible as is very efficient operation of the motor with minimal torque ripple.

The encoder is connected with a flat ribbon cable; suitable connectors are available.

The advantages at a glance:

  • Cable length of up to 5 m
  • Position available immediately after power on
  • Efficient operation with low torque ripple
