Off-Axis configuration enhances the design flexibility
Rotary Position Sensing
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…
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 AK7454, it is possible to achieve an accuracy of about 0.1 ° even in Off-Axis configuration as well as Shaft-End by performing calibration.
