maxon Sensor

By maxon motor

Robust encoders, DC tachometers, and resolvers with high accuracy and high signal resolution. Due to resonance, these are mainly mounted on motors with a continuous shaft. The assembly requires adjustment to the motors and may only be done in the delivery plant.

More about maxon sensor

maxon offers a series of sensors. Their characteristics are:

Digital incremental encoder

  • Relative position signal suitable for positioning tasks
  • Rotation direction recognition
  • Speed information from number of pulses per time unit
  • Standard solution for many applications

DC tachometer

  • Analog speed signal
  • Rotation direction recognition
  • Not suitable for positioning task


  • Analog rotor position signal
  • Analog speed signal
  • Extensive evaluation electronics required in the control system
    For special solutions in conjunction with sinusoidal commutation in EC motors
