Video "Absolute industrial encoders – more communicative, more compact"
With an installation depth of only 47 mm, absolute encoders of the series OptoTurn EAL580 are extremely compact and offer maximum space for the construction.
Unrivalled compact and space saving
Ethernet encoder with the smallest installation depth in the 58 mm class: a mere 47 mm
Cost-efficient and lean cabling
The radial connector outlet allows the use of straight connectors and avoids tight and trouble-prone bending radius
Easy integration at every spot
Only ethernet encoder on the market with through hollow shaft allows for direct integration into the drive train
Increased system availability
Supports Media Redundancy Protocol (MRP) for compensation of connection fails in a ring topology
Supports Simple Device Replacement, easy replacement of identical device due to neighbourhood detection
Oriented towards the future: Industry 4.0 – IIoT ready
Access to parameters and additional information over PROFINET & OPC UA, Cloud Service compatible for optimization of processes like e.g. preventive maintenance
High-precision and fast detection of positions and speed
Handling and mounting systems
Wood, plastic or metal processing
Production and processing of paper and board
PROFINET – for maximum availability
Increased machine and plant availability through Media Redundancy Protocol (MRP): In the event of line or switch failure in ring topology, the system continues to run fault-free. Only a warning message appears.
No pre-configuration before device replacement due to Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP): In hard use, even the best devices can fail once. To enable a time-saving replacement, the OptoTurn EAL580 uses neighborhood recognition via LLDP. The same devices can be replaced at any time without pre-configuration.
Support of real-time (RT) and isochronous real-time (IRT) operating modes: The OptoTurn EAL580 always works according to the requirements of the application.
EtherCAT – for extremely fast and precise applications
Simple and intuitive commissioning: The device address is conveniently assigned e.g. using the TwinCAT commissioning software. Firmware updates of the encoder are controlled via the protocol file access over EtherCAT (FoE).
Minimum cycle time (62.5 μs) and low jitter: For demanding applications and high precision control of the machine in real-time.
Support of the operating modes Free Run, Synchronous Mode and Distributed Clocks. The OptoTurn EAL580 always adapts to the requirements of the respective application. Regardless of whether the values are freely determined or provided in a highly synchronous manner.
EtherNet/IP – for universal data access
Increased plant availability through Device Level Ring (DLR): In the case of an interruption in a plant network in ring topology, the OptoTurn EAL580 ensures that the encoder data are still sent to the control.
Integrated web server for process data access from the office network via control to the rotary encoder: Storage and analysis on any server or in the cloud. Access management and the highest security are ensured by the control system.
