  • Schaumburg, IL, April 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For those needing contamination-resistant encoders with functional safety (FS) for machine feedback, HEIDENHAIN introduces an absolute modular magnetic angle encoder.
  • This new ECM 2400 encoder supplements HEIDENHAIN's portfolio of absolute angle encoders and is designed for machine tool applications that require a sturdy encoder with medium accuracy.
  • The ECM 2400 is suitable for applications with high rotational speeds, angular accelerations, and limited space due to it low overall height of the complete system.' The ECM 2400 works particularly well on B-axis lathes with motorized milling spindles, or on the A and C axes of milling machines where a large hollow shaft encoder.
