Off-Axis configuration enhances the design flexibility
Rotation Angle Sensors
The encoder cannot be placed at the end of shaft.
Are there any encoders that can use the end of shaft space freely?
Then what is our solution…
Rotation angle sensor, AK7455, for magnetic encoders can be designed with either Shaft-End or Off-Axis configuration. It is also available in the structure that a magnet cannot be attached to the end of shaft, such as a hollow motor for wiring cables.
Advantages of Off-Axis configuration (Example: Robot Arm)
For Shaft-End configuration, there are following concerns due to routing the cable outside.
For Off-Axis configuration, there are following advantages because the cable can be passed through the shaft.
With a magnetic encoder using the AK7455, it is possible to achieve an accuracy of about 0.1 ° even in Off-Axis configuration as well as Shaft-End by performing calibration.
