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.
In an age of globalization and rapid changes through scientific progress, two of our societies' (and economies') main concerns are to satisfy the needs and wishes of the individual and to save precious resources. Cloud computing caters to both of these.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
