This involves a play-free electronic switching cam encoder (abbreviated to: NOCE) with a maximum of four galvanically separated SIL2 switching outputs that can be set by the customer, and which are activated or deactivated depending on the respective position of the drive shaft. A parameterisable multiturn absolute encoder with SSI interface and the switching cam encoder PCB with separate controller are integrated in the compact housing. The SSI interface can be preset, the encoding direction is adjustable and the switching outputs can be preset. A special shaft design appropriate to the play-compensating measurement gear ZRS is available. The supply voltage, SSI signal and switching contacts are each galvanically separated from one another.
