This encoder is made for harsh environments, with a temperature of operation of -60 to 150C, immunity to lightning, high-voltage static and plasma fields, and resistance to radiation. It outdistances copper encoder links by up to 1,000m, and is safe and ATEX compliant. With the MR310 Remote Encoder Interface Module, it has quadrature outputs, a quadrature multiplier/divider, 24-bit absolute multiturn encoder emulation mode, a RS232/RS422 serial interface, and two programmable analog outputs (4-20 mA and +/-10V). The engineering evaluation kit, including the MR314 and MR310 costs $3,495, and it costs as low as $2,500 in larger quantities.
The Industrial Internet of Things may be going off the deep end in connecting everything on the plant floor. Some machines, bearings, or conveyors simply donít need to be monitored -- even if they can be.
