NEW! EtherCAT Ready Heavy Duty Absolute Encoders for Industrial Ethernet Networks

Encoder Products Company (EPC) has released the A58 Series of EtherCAT-ready heavy duty absolute encoders.  The A58 Series is the first in a new line of absolute encoders from EPC to offer networking capabilities.  They easily connect into an industrial network with minimal setup requirements, thus allowing for rapid deployment.  These multi-turn absolute encoders are suited for applications where fieldbus connectivity is required and the encoder has to retain position information even after a power loss.  The A58 EtherCAT-ready Absolute Encoder Series offers two different models including Model A58HE which is a 58mm encoder in a hollow bore construction, and the Model A58SE which is a 58mm shaft encoder available with either a clamping flange or synchro flange.

Key features:
  • EtherCAT Deterministic Communication
  • Multi-turn resolution up to 43 bits
  • Up to 16 bits of single turn resolution
  • 58 mm diameter housing
  • Bores sizes up to 0.375″ or 15 mm
  • Shaft diameters up to 0.375” or 10 mm
  • Durable magnetic technology
  • Proven turns counting technology with no gears or batteries
  • Operating temperature range of -40° C to 85° C
  • Sealing rating of IP65 (on A58SE, 10 mm shaft comes with IP67 sealing)
  • Continuous digital position monitoring
  • Ability to retain absolute position after a power outage
  • Meet CE/EMC Standards for Immunity and Emissions
Benefits:
  • Easily designed into a wide variety of applications.
  • Plug directly into a network with minimal setup which allows for fast deployment.
  • Works in various configurations, including daisy-chaining, and redundant-ring configurations.
  • Retains absolute position information even after a power loss, facilitating speedy system recovery at start-up without the need for system re-homing.
  • Facilitates data exchange among connected devices, allowing companies to transition to a networked system and facility.
  • Works with CANOpen over EtherCAT, so for users with CANOpen Technology, implementation is straight forward.
  • Ready for industry 4.0 and for the IIoT, data exchange between the encoder and other applications has no influence on the control loop.
  • Thus it is 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.
Applications:
  • Robotics
  • Telescopes
  • Antennas
  • Medical scanners
  • Wind turbines
  • Elevators
  • Lifts
  • Motors
  • Automatic guided vehicles
  • Rotary, X/Y positioning tables

New Heavy Duty Hollow Bore Absolute Encoder

Encoder Products Company has released a new heavy duty hollow bore absolute encoder, designed for harsh factory and plant floor environments.  Sarah Walter, an electrical engineer and Sales Engineer for Encoder Products Company, explains that “In any type of machinery that has a time-consuming positioning routine – an example would be a satellite dish – an absolute encoder is ideal.”  She goes on to explain that with an absolute encoder, the controller has precise motion feedback about the position of the equipment.  There is no need to re-home during every start-up, which consumes valuable uptime.  With absolute positioning, the controller knows exactly where the machine is at all times.

Key Features & Benefits

  • Heavy duty, flexible absolute encoder
  • Available in both single and multi-turn resolution
  • Good for applications where an encoder needs to retain position information after power-off scenarios
  • Wide variety of configuration options
  • Hollow bore design and rugged housing
  • Can easily be designed into a variety of applications

Specifications

  • Multi-turn resolution up to 39 bits
  • Up to 14 bits of single-turn resolution
  • SSI and CANopen communications
  • 58 mm diameter housing
  • Bores sizes up to 3/8″ or 14 mm
  • Two flexible mounting options
  • Proven turns counting technology with no gears or batteries
  • Durable magnetic technology
  • Operating temperature range of -40°C to 85°C
  • Sealing rating of IP65 on the shaft, with the balance of the unit rated to IP67
  • Continuous digital position monitoring
  • Ability to retain absolute position after a power outage

Applications for Heavy Duty Hollow Bore Absolute Encoders

  • Aerospace
  • Material handling
  • Mobile equipment
  • Packaging
  • Converting
  • Metal forming & fabrication
  • Printing
  • Motor feedback
  • Cut-to-length
  • Filling
  • Conveying
  • Ball Screw Positioning
  • X-Y Positioning

Configurations Available

Flex Mount (SR) –  63 mm 2-point flex mount

Flex Arm (SQ) – 108 mm flex arm

The Most Versatile Size 25 Shaft Encoder You’ll Find From Encoder Products Company

The NEW Model 25SP Accu-CoderPro is the Size 25 incremental shaft encoder that goes anywhere.

The Model 25SP comes standard with:25SP-banner_750x600

  • An industrial housing
  • Dual bearings rated 80lbs axial or radial, so it can handle heavy-duty applications
  • Up to IP67 sealing, to keep it working in challenging environments
  • Same day shipping on select configurations
  • Programmable configuration

Programmable CPR, Output Type, & Waveform

With the easy to use, point-and-click interface, programming is quick and straight-forward. The number of possible configurations makes this Size 25 programmable shaft encoder incredibly versatile:

  • CPR – any resolution from 1 to 65,536. That’s 262,144 counts using 4x quadrature counting
  • Waveform – choose from 32 options
  • Output type – 6 different output types
  • The versatile Model 25SP is one encoder that can replace many different part numbers, saving you money on inventory and down-time replacement.

“What really sets the Model 25SP apart is the number of configuration options. With so many different connectors, waveforms, outputs, and CPRs to choose from, it’s the most versatile programmable Size 25 shaft encoder you’ll find,” explains Steve Dilts, Business Development Manager.
