The Model A58HE and Model A58HEare EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP, or PROFINET-ready, multi-turn absolute encodesr designed for heavy duty industrial applications. They are ideal for applications requiring Ethernet-based connectivity, and where the encoder must retain position information after power-off events. Easily designed into a wide variety of system applications, the encoders can be plugged directly into a network with minimal provisioning for rapid deployment, facilitating data exchange among myriad networked devices. They also retain absolute position information even after a power loss, facilitating speedy system recovery at start-up without the need for system re-homing.
Ready for Industry 4.0 and for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), data exchange between the encoders and other applications has no influence on the control loop. They are non-reactive and can work independently from the PLC or master, transferring data through network gateways to other automation networks and sites, and up to the cloud for analysis.
EPC network-ready absolute encoders offer:
• Single or multi-turn (16-Bit ST / 43-Bit MT)
• 58 mm (2.28”) diameter package
• No gears or batteries means a more compact, longer lasting, reliable design
• Energy-harvesting magnetic multi-turn technology
