EtherCAT Encoders Provide Positioning and Speed Data for Multi-I/O Systems

EtherCAT Encoders Provide Positioning and Speed Data for Multi-I/O Systems

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.

The Absolute 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.

Baumer Absolute ATD PoE EtherCAT Encoders are an alternative to multi-cable systems because field bus signals are transmitted by using one cable. These encoders are especially suitable for difficult-to-access applications.

These 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 concern.
