Communication Systems & Equipment

Compact Encoders are optimized for connectivity.

With interfaces for EtherNet/IP and PROFINET IRT networks, OPTOCODE encoders are suited for motion control applications and can be used in high-speed machines. EtherNet/IP models, which incorporate Ertec200 controller, have cycle times of less than 10 ms, while PROFINET IRT models support cycle times as low as 1 and 10 ms. Angular resolution is 65,536 steps per revolution (16 bits), while up to...
