Redundant incremental encoder WDGR
With the WDGR series, Wachendorff Automation is launching a family of redundant incremental encoders with diverse sensor technology (optical and magnetic). In combination with appropriate control systems or, for example, speed monitors, high performance levels can be achieved at low cost.
New Silent Move Compact digital shaft copying system
New: Silent Move Compact
In addition to incremental and absolute encoders, Wachendorff also supplies specially developed digital shaft positioning systems for the elevator / lift industry. Now Wachendorff has succeeded in further compressing the electronics and mechanics of the Silent Move toothed belt system and reducing them to the essentials. The result is the Silent Move Compact system.

Torque support WDGDS10020
The torque support WDGDS10020 compensates tolerances such as radial runout due to backlash or the drive shaft, as well as axial movements of the drive shaft when mounting hollow and end hollow shaft encoders.
Length measuring system LMS MA
The length measuring system LMS MA is a very space-saving, reliable complete system for the measurement of position, speed and length.
Up to 0.003 mm/pulse provide excellent measurement results. Now available with PROFINET or EtherCAT.
Absolute encoders for onshore and offshore applications
The absolute encoders of the WDGA series can be ordered as seawater solid and corrosion resistant versions. In this variant, for example, the flange is specially anodised against corrosion and the housing is powder-coated. All other parts, e.g. the shaft or the cable gland, are made of stainless steel. The outer ball bearing is also made of stainless steel and is also specially sealed.
In order to validate the corrosion resistance, the salt spray resistance was verified with a test according to DIN EN 60068-2-11.
World first: Universal Industrial Ethernet Encoder
Now, the WDGA Universal Industrial Ethernet Encoder by Wachendorff Automation greatly simplifies these stock issues for mechanical and plant engineers, as well as for distributors and mail-order retailers. This is because the required protocol is only imported via the encoder’s website when the relevant encoder is actually used. This works even without needing to use any additional tools or programming adapters. All you need is a PC with a network card, with a freely adjustable IP address, and the web browser of your choice. The process only takes a few minutes. You can use PROFINET or EtherCAT just-in-time to get started with the new type of encoder. Additional protocols will follow soon.
Now also for EtherCAT!
Our absolute encoders of the WDGA series are now available with EtherCAT interface.
The world's most compact design of an encoder with bus cover helps to save valuable installation space.
Motor Feedback of the Latest Generation
The Wachendorff kit offers clear advantages compared to resolvers, magnetic sensors with backup batteries and encoder kits with optical scans and gearboxes.
Due to the higher level of robustness against vibrations and other environmental stresses as well as the faster assembly, the company Wachendorff is expecting another step of creative destruction, which they already predicted ten years ago with the introduction of the EnDra® technology.
Wachendorff offers two different concepts for this purpose:
• An operational absolute encoder
• Installation kit
Heavy-duty rotary encoders for PROFINET from the modular system
Wachendorff Automation has extended its WDGA absolute rotary encoder series in the PROFINET-IO field with the extremely robust WDGA 58D – designed for heavy-duty applications.
As it has already been implemented for the SSI, CAN, PROFIBUS interfaces, the shaft of PROFINET encoder WDGA 58D can be loaded both radially as well as axially with max. 400 N. This is an absolute peak value and guarantees a long service life.
Fastest and most compact PROFINET encoder in the world
With its new WDGA58F design, Wachendorff has succeeded in constructing the world's smallest design in an axial and radial direction.
The encoders are able to keep pace with the latest PLC technologies thanks to the minimum bus cycle time of 125 µs.
The single-turn area, with innovative QuattroMag® technology, provides highest resolution, precision and internal dynamics.
In the area of the multi-turn, the encoders come with maintenance-free and space-saving EnDra® technology.
Length measurement system LMSMA2x/3x
The positions, speeds and travel lengths of conveyor belts, film and paper webs or cardboard packaging, for example, can be recorded safely and efficiently using the measuring systems from Wachendorff Automation. With the new LMSMA2x and LMSMA3x measuring systems, we meet the highest requirements in an ideal way.
Measuring system LMSLA12 for marking and labeling
The new measuring system LMS LA12 is a perfectly tuned, preassembled complete system for use in the field of marking and labelling.
WDGI encoder… the new incremental industry standard
Wachendorff Automation has completely revised the incremental encoders of the WDG series, which are based on the 58 mm design size industry standard. This can only mean one thing: WDG has become WDGI.
But it‘s the enhanced benefits for you as a user that really matter. In addition to a modern design, Wachendorff have attached a great deal of importance to improving key technical properties.
Encoder WDGA-DP; Class 1, 2, 3, 4 selectable
For the choice of an absolute PROFIBUS-DP shaft encoder, the user usually has to specify which shaft encoder operating profile is required. However, if the requirements and desired functionalities change in the course of time, a profile change then frequently makes it necessary to replace the existing shaft encoder.
