gSENS_DWG20gSENS DWG20 absolute rotary encoders combine precise position measurement with high resolution and compact design.  This sensor was developed especially for angular positioning tasks under rough environmental conditions.  Based on an optoelectronic scanning mechanism, the encoder provides a high sampling rate and constant precision over the full measuring range.

Without backup batteries the sensors are capable of providing definite position values from the moment they are switched on as well as immediately after a power loss.
