EVM58 Ethernet IP Encoders are available in single or multi-turn
configurations. These rotary
encoders provide accurate absolute machine position or velocity
feedback to the system controller via an industry-standard Ethernet/IP
IP Encoders are also compatible with a variety of PLC controllers,
including industry-standard PLC products from Rockwell Automation, Allen
Bradley and Schneider, making them useful for material
and general factory
Ethernet IP Encoders come in standard 58 mm
diameter housings, with a solid
10 mm shaft and clamping flange design. Diagnostic LEDs provide visual status
indication to help users quickly correct problems and keep machines up and
running. M12 d-coded connectors simplify operation and are used to power, and
facilitate communication to and from, the encoder. Ethernet IP Encoders can be used with cable pull devices to determine linear
position feedback and transmit that feedback back to the controller.
More and more robots are becoming more autonomous all the time. Now Lockheed Martin has completed a demo mission with two completely autonomous robotic vehicles performing resupply, reconnaissance, surveillance, and target acquisition.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
