WA22M2 encoder NFC Wachendorff

World Innovation ... Encoder configuration via NFC

The new WDGN series of incremental encoders enables configuration of any pulse count from 1 I/U to 16,384 I/U via NFC. Depending on the equipment, Basic or Advance, further parameters can be set via APP using NFC.

When there is uncertainty about which number of pulses the encoder needs to run optimally in an application, the WDGN encoder offers the necessary flexibility to test the optimum number of pulses.
Optimum spare parts, logistics and warehouse management becomes possible. Because with the free app on the smartphone, communication with the encoder takes place via NFC, completely without an internet connection, and the desired parameter values can be set just-in-time.

Drehgeber encoder WDGP36J

Compact heavy duty encoder - in IP67+IP69K version

From now on, you can get the rotary encoders of the incremental WDGP series and the absolute encoders of the WDGA series in the extremely compact 36 design in the "36J" version.
The 36J version stands for a very high bearing load of 300 N axial and radial as well as the increased protection class IP67+IP69K.  This makes these encoders fit for high-pressure/steam jet cleaning.
They are designed for applications in harsh environments, such as mobile machines, in the food industry or in car washes.

WDGP incremental encoders with freely definable pulse number

New incremental encoder series WDGP
... Pulse number completely free to define

Are you looking for a compact incremental encoder with high resolution or with a "crazy" pulse count? Then you are absolutely right with this series.

The proven Wachendorff magnetic sensor technology is now available with ANY pulse count from 1 to 16,384 pulses per rotation.
The inverted signals, TTL and HTL output are also selectable when ordering.
The encoders are available in a very compact 36 mm design or in the quasi-industrial standard of 58 mm.

Samples and test units are available now.
Contact our application consultants or our sales staff for advice.

Ultra-compact measuring system – just 120 mm long

The new LMSCA length measuring system 
... ultra-compact and industry-robust 

Our product group of length measuring systems is extended with the LMSCA by an extremely compact and nevertheless robust system.

The system is just 120 mm long!
It can be combined with measuring wheels of 200 mm circumference.
An even smaller measuring wheel with a circumference of 145 mm and an O-ring will be available very soon.
With the pre-assembled encoders of the WDGP series, resolutions of 80 pulses per millimeter or 0.0125 mm per pulse are achievable.
Other important features: adjustable contact pressure from 0 to 20 Newton in 5 Newton increments, as well as a loss-proof central screw.

Convince yourself and order your sample.

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.

OnOffShore absolute encoders

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.


Wachendorff encoder Universal IE

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.

Motorfeedback EinbauKit

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

Drehgeber PROFINET HeavyDuty

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.

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.

LinkProducts WDGI

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.
