Incremental dual output encoder for ATEX Zone 1 with Profibus

Incremental dual output encoder for ATEX zone 1 Profibus | Scancon

The EXAG Profibus / incremental dual output encoder from Scancon is designed for use in ATEX Zone 1 with the possibility of feedback to various devices.


The dual output encoder has a resolution up to 30 bits multi-turn and an incremental resolution up to 8192 pulses per revolution. The dual output encoder is standard equipped with a removable cover for on-site modification and by means of rotary switches, setting of the Profibus address.
