General Absolute Encoder Information
The GEL 2310 series of singleturn absolute encoders delivers unique position values at every angular position via digital interfaces with a resolution of up to 16 bits. It also supports the optional output of sin/cos differential signals.
The absolute encoder exhibit a particularly compact design with an external diameter of 60 mm and a height of just 15 mm. It is ideal for integration in machinery. Two GEL 2310s can be used for redundant measuring to satisfy increased security requirements (presence of persons in the system's positioning range).
- The anodised aluminium housing is very resistant and fully encapsulated (IP 40).
- The new metallic measuring scale (nonius disc) withstands high shock and vibration levels.
- The hollow shaft has an internal diameter of up to 15 mm.
- A new type of compact clamping ring provides torque support (patent pending) and minimises installation time.
The measurement principle of the GEL 2310 series is based on the magnetic scanning of a new type of nonius disc made of ferromagnetic steel. Magnetoresistive sensors scan three tracks and deliver three corresponding sinusoidal signals. The phase position of these three sinusoidal signals is evaluated on the basis of the nonius principle with high resolution and accuracy, immediately delivering the absolute position.
Magnetic Measuring Principle
- withstands high shock and vibration levels
- not influenced by dirt or oil mist
- long-term stability of temperature characteristics
- full functionality in the presence of condensation: dew-point-proof
- no aging of the magnetic sensor elements
The absolute rotary encoder supplies the position values in a binary or gray code via a fast SSI interface. In addition, it delivers high-interpolateable sin/cos differential signals with 1 Vpp signal level. The optional programming of code, resolution, counting direction and PRESET values is also possible. Dynamic motion processes can be securely controlled with 16-bit singleturn resolution and a high data rate up to 2 MHz for SSI mode. An optional feature permits the output of the number of revolutions. This multiturn function is based on a volatile memory that loses its content when de-energised. The feature is only available on request.

PRESET adjustment SSI
A PRESET value can be set in the absolute rotary encoder by applying VS to pink (t > 100 ms). ZERO is set as the default singleturn value (corresponds to a RESET).
The absolute rotary encoder GEL 235 transmits its position data via a fast Synchron-Seriell-Interface (SSI) with up to 2 MHz data rate using binary or Gray Code. With increasing data rate the allowed cable length using the SSI mode decreases (see table cable length) and a minimum pause time of 16 µs is necessary before the next request for position data can be started.
Sin/Cos differential signal
For real-time control high interpolateable Sin/Cos differential signals 1 Vpp are supported.
Using SSI protocol the allowed data rates are reduced as the cable length increases. It is recommended that the wires of ± Clock and ± Data are each in twisted pair configuration each while the cable is shielded.
|Cable length/m||Clockrate / kHz|
|< 50||< 400|
|< 100||< 300|
|< 200||< 200|
|< 400||< 100|
Preliminary tension in the radial and axial directions can be minimised by using a flexible torque support. For further mounting material such as brackets, coupling equipment, etc. please refer to our technical information for the encoder accessories program.
