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, e.g., 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 for 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 Mode; 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 (BEPC) is the European branch of the Encoder Products Group, a worldwide manufacturer of motion sensing and control devices, whose encoders are increasingly becoming the basic elements of automation systems in industries as:
- Machine building
- Autonomous Vehicles & Robots
- Automation and sorting
- Food & Beverage
- Material Handling
- Mobile equipment, etc.
