A 16-fold improvement in resolution, an electronic type label, and a HYPERFACE interface are the features of SICK’s new SEK52 capacitive encoder.
It is stirring up the "resolver gangs" in the lower segment of industrial path, position and r.p.m. detection applications.
In the long run, as the device is also mechanically compatible with the "resolver heroes", many of them will be forced to withdraw from the motor and regulator market.
With its capacitive functional principle, the SEK52 offers a level of robustness comparable to resolvers. It has greater accuracy resulting from a total of 16 sine/cos periods, with improved dynamic regulatory behaviour and integrability in modern automation structures - thanks to its electronic type label and HYPERFACE interface.
Use in standard and low-cost applications
The SEK52 benefits from SICK-STEGMANN's many years' experience in high-end applications, together with technologically based development, production and cost synergies.
