RCP5 ROBO Cylinder® with Battery-less Absolute Encoder as Standard Equipment.
The RCP5 series actuator with battery-less absolute encoder, realizing the convenience of an absolute encoder along with the cost and simplicity of an incremental encoder. The battery-less absolute encoder is an innovative encoder requiring no hassle or cost of battery replacement.
This encoder is ideal for the automobile industry and other production facilities where many absolute type actuators are used.
A battery-less absolute encoder is an absolute encoder that verifies the current position based on the interlocked gear position. On conventional absolute encoders, the current position was stored by using a battery. A battery-less type is now available making a battery no longer necessary to keep data in memory.
