AS38-H39E Series encoder is a high-resolution optical absolute encoder produced by which offers 23-bits single-turn and 16-bits multi-turn counts, hence a combined 39 bits high resolution. The AS38-H39E series encoder is a house encoder consisting of a patterned disk, a light source, and photosensitive elements to translate the mechanical motion into electrical signal. The Sxxx option encoders are preloaded with SSI communication protocol, which is supported by a full-duplex line transmissions drive (RS-485), offering good noise immunity for more robust transmission of data up to 1 Mbps in harsh industrial applications.
The key advantage of the AS38-H39E is its multi-turn tracking that employs energy harvesting technology by harvesting the magnetic energy as the encoder shaft rotates. It is the gearless multi-turn counting that eliminates the gear wear out or acoustics noise issue that is encountered in conventional geared multi-turn encoders. On the other hand, when comparing to battery backed up multi-turn counting, this technology does not require periodic maintenance of the battery backup components and the down time associated with it. Because the product is intended for industrial application, ESD protection circuitry has been designed in to achieve Class 3 ESD immunity per IEC -61000-4-2 standard. The AS38-H39E series is also compliant with IP50 per IEC 60529 standard.
The energy-harvesting coil module cuts the moving magnet field, and generates energy as a result. The beauty of the energy-harvesting effect is that the same amount of energy is generated independent of the rotation speed. The generated energy is sufficient to power up the revolution tracking circuitry. Therefore, no miscounts occur even in the absence of external power supply.
