Azimuth Angle Encoder

A lightweight, unpackaged angle encoder for measurement of azimuth in airborne gimbals.  Low mass, bearingless and low inertia rotor.  This low-profile, high resolution product is designed for easy installation around the system’s slip ring.

  • Absolute angle encoder over 360 degrees continuous
  • 16 bit resolution (16384 counts per rev)
  • Repeatability = 1 bit

What is an azimuth encoder?

An azimuth encoder provides a precise angle measurement within a spherical coordinate system.

Azimuth control and pitch applications

Zettlex encoders are tried and tested in airborne, onshore, and offshore applications such as satcom on-the-move.
