Sales release for absolute value encoders with DRIVE-CLiQ – completion of a redesign process

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
The absolute value encoders featuring a DRIVE-CLiQ interface have undergone a redesign. The successor products are distinguished by a smaller size, lower weight, further enhanced robustness, a finer resolution, safety certification and a price advantage over their predecessors.

The successor products are mechanically compatible, but possess an M12 connecting flange socket instead of the RJ45 connector. An adaptation must be made in existing projects. The predecessor types will be discontinued with effect from October 1, 2017, but will continue to be available for delivery as spare part.





1. General information

The existing DRIVE-CLiQ encoders with RJ45 connection are being replaced with the redesign of the absolute value encoders with DRIVE-CLiQ interface and M12 connection. The redesign not only enables numerous technical benefits, but also lower product prices.
MOTION-CONNECT connecting cables with M12 connectors are already available; see 60179485.

2. Customer benefits

The encoders possess Safety Integrated, thus enabling safety-related applications.
Further advantages are

  • A clearly shorter length enables smaller installation spaces
  • Lower weight permits more dynamic applications
  • Enhanced robustness enables use under increased vibration load
  • Lower current consumption reduces temperature rise in the encoders
  • Finer resolution enables more precise position sensing
  • Price reduction in comparison with predecessor products reduces user costs

3. Technical data

Singleturn (ST) and Multiturn (MT) versions of the encoders are available.
Resolution is increased from 22 bits (ST) to 24 bits and from 34 bits (MT) to 36 bits.

3.1 Electrical specifications

The encoders' operating voltage remains unchanged at 24 V DC. Their current consumption has been clearly reduced and is less than 50 mA. Connection (operating voltage and data) is achieved by means of the DRIVE-CLiQ connector (M12). The M12 connector at the encoder end has IP67 degree of protection. You can find further electrical specifications in the annex.

3.2 Mechanical specifications

The version of the DRIVE-CLiQ encoders with synchronous flange, clamp flange and hollow shaft is 100% mechanically mounting-compatible with our current product spectrum. You can find the dimension drawings for all versions in the attached sheet. Cable connection with the M12 connector is made radially.

4. Compatibility with the predecessor

The encoders are 100% mounting-compatible with their predecessors. Only the connection technology is different. It was possible to reduce the required installation space by changing over from RJ45 to M12.
Due to replacement of the predecessor products' SMI with an integrated DRIVE-CLiQ ASIC, replacement of an encoder with RJ45 by the encoder with M12 requires recommissioning of the encoder.

The encoders are suitable for use from

  • SINAMICS V4.4 HF4
  • SINUMERIK
  • without Safety Integrated from V4.4 SP1 HF3 and
  • with Safety Integrated from V4.4 SP2.

5. Documentation

Each encoder comes with an enclosed sheet containing an excerpt from the technical specifications and also dimension drawings. You will find the enclosed sheet in the annex.
You will find all detailed technical specifications in future catalogs; see the catalog excerpt annex. Dimension drawings are available as .dxf and .step files at 37684716.
Inclusion in the DT configurator is in preparation.
Inclusion in the CAD-Creator will be possible in Version 2.2 as from about December 2016.
