The ECM 2400 works particularly well on B-axis lathes with motorized milling spindlesClick image to enlargeHeidenhain’s new ECM 2400 absolute modular magnetic angle encoder resists contamination and comes with functional safety (FS) for machine feedback.

It’s designed for machine tool applications that require a sturdy encoder with medium accuracy and is suitable for applications with high rotational speeds, angular accelerations, and limited space due to it low overall height of the complete system.

The ECM 2400 works particularly well on B-axis lathes with motorized milling spindles, or on the A and C axes of milling machines where a large hollow shaft encoder is necessary, but it’s suitable on all rotary axes that require the following attributes:

  • Safety-oriented application (mechanical fault exclusion)
  • Sturdy angle encoder
  • Large inside diameter
  • Lower position accuracy than an optical measurement system
  • Dynamic positioning accuracy (simultaneous multi-axis machining)

The encoders are available with EnDat 2.2 interface. In conjunction with a safe control, they can be used as single-encoder systems in applications with control category SIL 2 (as per EN 61508) and with Performance Level “d” (as per EN ISO 13849).

Existing non-FS interfaces for ECM 2400 encoders includes Fanuc05 and Mit03-4. All of these encoders have an IP67 rating and can be ordered now.
