AV6M Magnetic Encoder

AV6M shafted magnetic absolute rotary encoders offer excellent performance and durability in a cost-effective package.  By utilizing Wiegand wire energy harvesting technology combined with magnetic sensors, Avtron has created an absolute encoder design which requires no batteries, long-term capacitors, glass disks, or gears!   Also available:  hollow shaft model (HS6M), severe duty models (AV30, HS40), as well as optical models (AV6A, HS6A) for ultra-precision applications. 

AV6M encoders have superior shaft seals and bearings that stay sealed to keep contaminants out, through temperature cycling and liquid sprays.  Moreover, the magnetic sensor can see through oil, dust and dirt that disable ordinary optical absolute encoders. 

The AV6M features a broad range of industry standard communication protocols:  from analog outputs to CANbus, DeviceNet, J1939 and SSI, you will find the communication protocol you need. 

Our AV6M encoders combine magnetic sensors and superior bearing and seal technology to give top performance in industrial applications.  Select AV6M today!
