Profinet-ready absolute encoders

Thanks to the integrated Ethernet-based communication, Profinet is a tried and tested technology that enables efficient and economical installation concepts in complex networks. British Encoder Products Company offers two new Profinet-ready absolute encoders.

In modern production networks, machines and devices are interconnected. The processes coordinated down to the last detail enable a high degree of automation and short production cycle times. Network structures are often subject to regular changes, for example in the case of new robots with frequent changes of tools or extensions during operations.

Profinet-ready absolute encoders Model A58HE (blind hollow bore) and Model A58SE (shaft) are designed for harsh factory and plant environments. Easily designed into a wide variety of applications, these encoders plug directly into a network with minimal prerequisites, and work in various configurations, including bus, ring, and star configurations that can continue communication in event of a line break. As absolute encoders, they 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 Model A58HE and Model A58SE and other applications has no influence on the control loop. These encoders 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.

British Encoder Products Company will be showcasing its full range of products at Design Engineering Expo held at the NEC, Birmingham from 8-9 of June 2022, on stand H10.
