Baumer's high speed Absolute ATD EtherCAT
Encoders have a cycle time of 62 ms for fast positioning, speed control and
motor feedback data to simplify communication between drives and control
systems in multi- I/O equipment. The encoders experience very little clock
phase jitter and are available with optional Power over EtherCAT (PoE) to
minimize cabling requirements and associated malfunctions.
ATD EtherCAT Encoders measure 80 x 58 mm and are useful in limited space
applications including robotic and automated systems. These single or
multi-turn encoders are compatible with the CANopen over EtherCAT (CoE)
protocol and have a14-bit single-turn and 16-bit multi-turn resolutions.

Encoders are an alternative to multi-cable systems because field bus signals are
transmitted by using one cable. These encoders are especially suitable for
encoders can be used on robotic arms, robotic pick-and-place systems, automated
packaging lines, material handling equipment, laboratory automation equipment,
medical imaging systems, printing equipment, textile processes machines,
theater sets and in other applications where cable movement and cable life are
A make-your-own Star Wars Sith Lightsaber hilt is heftier and better-looking than most others out there, according to its maker, Sean Charlesworth. You can 3D print it from free source files, and there's even a hardware kit available -- not free -- so you can build one just in time for Halloween.
