maxon sensor

Precise encoders, DC tachometers and high-resolution resolvers. For maxon DC and EC drives.

Encoders, DC tachometers and resolvers allow accurate evaluation of the speed and angle position and form the framework for high-precision control loops. These devices have to be fitted to the motors at the supplying factory, as the installation process is fine-tuned to the respective motor.
