Encoder Products Company to release absolute encoders for PROFINET communications
September 24, 2019 By Manufacturing AUTOMATION
September 24, 2019 – Encoder Products Company is releasing absolute encoders equipped for PROFINET communications protocol.
Model A58HE and Model A58SE are Ethernet-ready, multi-turn absolute encoders designed for harsh factory and plant environments. In addition to EtherCAT Deterministic Communication, the models A58HE and A58SE now offer PROFINET communication protocol as well.
These encoders are particularly suited to applications where fieldbus connectivity is required, and the encoder has to retain absolute position information after power-off events. The Model A58HE is a 58 mm encoder in a blind hollow bore construction, and the Model A58SE is a 58 mm shaft encoder available with either a clamping flange or synchro flange, in both compact and heavy-duty configurations. The compact version is the most compact EtherCAT or PROFINET-capable encoder available.
The Model A58HE and Model A58SE Absolute Encoders offer multi-turn resolution up to 43 bits, single-turn resolution up to 16 bits, bore sizes up to 0.375″ or 15 mm, and shaft diameters up to 0.375” or 12 mm.
They run in an operating temperature range of -40° C to 85° C and have a sealing rating of IP65
The PROFINET option on the Model A58SE and Model A58HE will be available October 1.
