Increasing machine productivity by using an Energy Harvesting multiturn encoder system

By using a multiturn absolute encoder, no homing is necessary after power has been lost. This saves time and additional components, as the axis does not need to move to a known reference point such as a limit switch. The Energy Harvesting principle is a comparatively new technology that can be used to realize miniaturized, maintenance-free and energy self-sufficient multiturn encoders. Read our whitepaper to find out how the technology is applied in a multiturn encoder system, what the advantages are of using such a system and how the new technology was successfully implemented in a development project at WITTENSTEIN.
