Wachendorff PROFIBUS-Encoder WDGA-DP: Class 1, Class 2, Class 3, Class 4 selectable

  • Investment security
  • All options open
  • Always the right choice


For the choice of an absolute PROFIBUS-DP shaft encoder, the user usually has to specify which shaft encoder operating profile is required. However, if the requirements and desired functionalities change in the course of time, a profile change then frequently makes it necessary to replace the existing shaft encoder.

Nonetheless, Wachendorff Automation offers machine builders and system operators an alternative designed around sustainability and investment security. The WDGA series of absolute shaft encoders for PROFIBUS-DP enables the user to load the preferred encoder profile quickly and easily via the device master file.

This means that, purely in terms of software, the user determines which class (1, 2, 3 or 4) is needed for operating the absolute shaft encoder. It is thus possible to switch to another class at any time without the need to reinvest in a shaft encoder and without the installation effort which this would require.

For Materials Management and for the Maintenance and Repair Departments, this is naturally an advantage, as the administrative effort and stocking only consist of a single shaft encoder type for different system generations or functionally different system designs.

Different designs and versatile connection facilities via bus terminal box or plug ensure optimal integration of the WDGA shaft encoder to suit the required application. Thanks to the EnDra® technology of Wachendorff Automation, the extremely compact size of the absolute encoders supports the trend towards miniaturisation in machine design. With their robust mechanical construction and very high bearing loads, they are designed for use in a harsh industrial environment.
