Troy, Michigan and London, Ontario - TR has extended its manufacturing capabilities and has introduced its LA-46 Ethernet/IP and LA-66 Profinet products to the North American market place, providing new Ethernet/IP and Profinet solutions for the industrial automation industries. The linear transducers are available in a variety of profiles or in-cylinder form-factors and have stroke lengths of up to 2000mm. These new products provide additional choice for industrial applications such as stamping, casting, injection molding, tire and rubber manufacturing, and automated machinery where a wear-free, continuous feedback solution is preferred. Custom lengths and configurations are available direct from TR's manufacturing facilities.
TR's LA-46 linear transducer is suitable for direct installation into cylinders and is certified to the Profinet standard by the PTO. The devices are available with standard measuring lengths up to 2000mm and can be custom ordered to specification. The LA-66 Ethernet/IP transducer is also a non-contact, wear-free measurement system designed for direct installation in hydraulic cylinders. The LA-66 is certified to the Ethernet/IP standard by the ODVA. Both devices are fully configurable using TR's WinPROG software, which is downloadable from the web-site, allowing users to configure their devices to exact specifications. Profile style options are also available.
