Profinet, Profibus Rotary Encoders

Sept. 1, 2011
Rotary encoders with the Profibus interface now support the DP-V2 encoder profile, which makes them ready for robot control and production technology. 

The company’s standard rotary encoders, ROC / ROQ 400 series with 58 mm housing diameter, are now also available with the Profinet interface. These encoders find use in manufacturing systems, process automation and drive applications. Units feature M12 or M23 input connectors and flange sockets that make cable connections more accessible and easier to use. This connection technology speeds assembly and reduces the risk of ESD damage to the encoder.  Absolute rotary encoders with Profibus comprise singleturn and multiturn versions that can be configured and parameterized according to the requirements of the application.
