Aiming high: the four-million-step rotary encoder

Sometimes it just has to be more. In this case, TWK's newly developed ABN encoder model has a resolution that divides the full circle of 360° into over 4 million steps. To be precise, in 222 steps - that's a resolution of 22 bits. High accuracy is equally important. This is impressive with better than ±10 arcsec. That is less than ±0.003°. Precise measurements of positions and speeds up to 10,000 rpm are thus possible. The ABN will be available from September 2022.
