AV56S (THIN-LINE III™) Magnetic Encoder

AV56S THIN-LINE III™ heavy mill duty modular magnetic encoders are designed for washdown and marine duty and fit a standard 4.5" motor flange. Other THIN-LINE III models, ranging from 115mm to 8.5", are available to fit other motor sizes.

THIN-LINE III encoders feature simple installation, durable construction, and clear diagnostics to eliminate encoder-related downtime:

First, the magnetic sensors are fully potted, to withstand dirt and liquids. No glass disks, no optics to clog. There are no moving, wearing parts!

The patented Wide-Gap™ rotors put an end to sensor damage, are simpler to install, and stay securely mounted to the shaft.

The universal 5-24V design drives longer cables and is protected against wiring errors and surges.

When you power up an AV56S, you know you installed it right: the green light tells you the digital self-tuning has set your AV56S optimally.

If at any time, the AV56S cannot produce ideal signals, the light changes to red and the remote alarm contact activates. If there are wiring errors, the LED will change to orange.  However, the encoder keeps working as long as possible to give you time to schedule service.

With a real-world installation history of over 4,500,000 hour MTBF, AV56S encoders will keep your machine running 24/7/365!
