The BML absolute magnetic encoder in the SGA series is well-suited for applications that require high absolute accuracy of position and end-of-travel. Comprehensive diagnostics functions ensure reliable operation and efficient maintenance. With its Drive-Cliq interface, the measuring system can be integrated into Siemens controller environments. Siemens has certified the system accordingly. Plug-and-play installation makes incorporating into the drive system easy. The controller detects the sensor and its basic settings automatically. The sensor offers flexibility as leaving and reengaging with the tape is permissible. Because the system works magnetically, it is insensitive to temperature change, dirt (such as from dust and oil) and wear.
