Drop-in replacements for old SIZAG encoders are here
For anyone having difficulty finding suitable replacements for old Siemens SIZAG units, we've got the perfect solution. Drop-in replacements! Simple.
Old Siemens SIZAG sensors, which are frequently found on equipment such as machine tool spindles, are no longer in production. They can be replaced with Lenord + Bauer's MiniCoder, GEL 244x series, attached to specially designed mounting blocks (designed and manufactured by us).
This makes the MiniCoder a drop-in replacement and perfectly interchangeable, size for size, with the old SIZAG encoders.
This applies to tooth-over-flag and flag-over-tooth configurations, flag or notch as the reference marker, as well as the reference flag/notch offset.
For those not familiar with the GEL244x sensors they are a contact free magnetic sensor, which senses passing teeth on a tooth-wheel. They are available with sinusoidal or square wave output, with or without interpolation, with a variety of output signals and suitable for a range of tooth-wheel modules. Have a look at our Speed & Position Sensors section on controlinmotion.com.
Special cable lengths, connectors and additional temperature sensing cable can also be supplied. Contact Ben Fallows for more information.
