SICK dual-port Industrial EtherNet/IP Absolute Encoders

AF S60/AFM 60 EtherNet/IP Absolute Encoders

Intelligent, powerful, precise - The AFS60 (single turn) and AFM60 (multiturn) encoders with EtherNet/IP, Profinet, and EtherCAT provide a durable, high resolution industrial Ethernet solution for many applications. The state-of-the-art embedded switch (Device Level Ring) feature and superior diagnostic functions easily set SICK apart from the competition.

The DLR functionality reduces external switching components and re-routes data when cable breaks in the network are detected. The AFS60 and AFM60 have superior diagnostic functions, including temperature and acceleration monitoring, and a durable metal code disc that is resistant to shock and high temperatures. These absolute encoders also include a customizable resolution for customer-specific applications using resolution scaling or endless shaft functionality.

With an IP 67/65 protection rating, the AFS60 and AFM60 can be used in a variety of applications that require precise and reliable position accuracy with EtherNet/IP network connectivity. A high degree of accuracy and repeatability make these encoders ideal for motion control, robotics, AGV, packaging and general manufacturing applications. Face mount, servo flange and blind hollow housings are available.
