Absolute encoders are often light duty models that aren't very reliable. Nidec-Avtron has a new line of Avtron Absolute encoders that solves this problem. Now the extreme reliability and durability you expect from Avtron encoders is available for your absolute positioning applications.
You can try before you commit:
You may order one or two for evaluation, do the trade-in, and then commit to more.
See individual product data sheets for specifications.
