SICK STEGMANN releases wire draw absolute encoder
BKS wire draw encoders are available with SSI or HIPERFACE interfaces as standard, and are available with a Profibus interface via an optional HIPERFACE Profibus adapter. They fulfill the demanding linear measurement requirements of a variety of automation applications including presses, punching and injection machines, storage technology, wood and sheet metal processing machines, machinery construction and medical technology, among others.
Other length measuring systems require precise linear guidance. Not so with the BKS system, where the integrated absolute encoder counts the number of drum rotations, which is proportional to the length, and converts that information into a measurement signal.
SICK STEGMANN, INC. is a wholly owned subsidiary of SICK AG in Waldkirch, Germany. SICK|STEGMANN is a world leader in the design and manufacture of incremental, absolute and linear encoders, as well as motor feedback systems.
