Description

The Model M58S with SSI output is a heavy-duty absolute rotary encoder with optical technology and
standard SSI (RS485) interface, used in a wide variety of position sensing applications for measuring
angles and distances.
It is available as a single-turn encoder with up to 21 bits of resolution (2,097,152 steps per revolution),
or as a standard multi-turn with a range of 18-bit words/turn + 40-bit turns. The optical technology and
magnetic sensors (for counting turns) allow the encoder to be gearless. A back-up battery is located
inside the encoder and assures true absolute position even power is disrupted.
