Absolute Encoders

In addition to their accurate counting capacity, absolute encoders are capable of ‘remembering’ the position. If you have a power cut, you can see exactly at which point the process was interrupted. This means that you do not have to reset and that you can even determine the precise position if a rotation was not fully completed. These encoders are therefore often used in applications that are sometimes stationary or slow-moving. We supply absolute encoders for redundant models with double electronics or double or even triple assembly. You can choose between absolute single-turn and absolute multi-turn. The options include an overspeed switch, which is often used for cranes, and fully customized stainless steel solutions, for example. Naturally, you can opt for absolute encoders with reinforced bearings and high shock resistance, or for explosion-proof versions, with Intrinsic Safety Barriers if so required. Some models are even suitable for use under water, and the ES version is less sensitive to incorrect alignment due to its special construction. Our encoders offer a variety of connecting options, which means that they are suitable for your application; M23 connector, PVC cable, PUR cable, Terminal box and 4 pinouts solenoid valve connector for the overspeed version.

Our manufacturing capacity enables us to offer both metric and imperial versions (NEMA). We can supply encoders for which you can effortlessly program the number of pulses per rotation (PPR) yourself, and we even supply wireless solutions with the SwiftComm wireless industrial sensor interface.


Aproco Drive Technology - Electic Motors

We specialise in NEMA and IEC electric motors (NEMA often for export to the USA, 50 and 60 Hz / UL / CSA / AC-DC), special high-precision (SIL3 / PLe) and/or heavy-duty encoders, earthing resistors and industrial connectors. Aproco supplies an extensive range of standard products from stock and manufactures customised products for (heavy) industrial, maritime and special project applications.

If you need to replace an electric motor or need a fast solution for a new project or due to expansion, Aproco is your partner. We can supply you with identical products or equivalent models (Also if you only need one custom motor or generator). The A-brands which we distribute globally complement every possible product range. Aproco is both an advisor and a supplier in the field of electronic drive technology.
