The AP9201L encoder is connected to the Evaluation & Programming Tool EPT via the Module Driver Board MDB001. In addition to the EPT, the Module Driver Board MDB001 must be ordered.


  • Highly miniaturized: 20 x 20 x 3.9 mm
  • Outputs SSI
  • Insensitive to magnetic interference fields
  • Robust against oil grease, liquids, dust, particles
  • Programmable resolution and max speed
  • Optional with holder, cable, and connector

The AP9201L absolute encoder kit consists of an encoder and a linear scale. The encoder consists of two inductive position sensors that read a Nonius scale, a microcontroller that calculates the absolute position and an SSI interface. The linear scale is a PCB with passive copper strips arranged in 2 tracks with an unequal number of periods N1 and N2.

Options like the orientation encoder to scale and the maximum speed are field-programmable or can be programmed ex-factory.
