Absolute Single Turn - AST

BEGE MIG AST Serie – Absolute Encoders

Optimize the production process and avoid redesigning your machine with the integration of the BEGE MIG AST; the patented flange encoder for ultra-precise positioning. The MIG absolute encoder ensures optimum interaction between the individual system components and makes highly accurate positioning tasks easy to perform.

Our customers often install the MIG AST encoder in environments where safety and accuracy are key factors. Compared to the incremental encoder, the single-turn absolute version has the advantage of remembering the position of the axis for one revolution.

Thanks to its memory, this encoder knows the correct position immediately when the machine is switched on again, for example after a power failure. The combination of all features makes the MIG absolute encoder the right solution for when precision counts.
