Compact Profibus Angular Encoder Fits Easily into Space Restricted Automated Equipment
Southington, Conn. - October 17, 2006....Baumer Electric has introduced the new MagRes Profibus, a highly compact, self contained absolute multi-turn encoder designed to fit easily into space restricted environments. The encoder's high density housing features two M12 input and output plugs for easy, wiring-free integration into Profibus-DP systems.
Designed to monitor and control position or speed, the MagRes Profibus offers 13 bit resolution in single-turn and 16 bit resolution in multi-turn versions. Simply installed using compatible connectors, the MagRes Profibus encoder allows the bus address to be conveniently set using rotary switches, although an integrated terminal resistor can be installed. LED indicators display the status of the encoder and the network communications.
Sized at just 58 mm in diameter and 42 mm deep, this compact sensor fits easily into the smallest automated environments. The MagRes Profibus encoder is highly reliable over its long service life, requiring virtually no maintenance.
