Pepperl+Fuchs High Resolution Ethernet IP Encoders

Pepperl+Fuchs introduces EVM58 Ethernet IP Encoders. Available in single or multi-turn configurations, these rotary encoders provide highly accurate absolute machine position or velocity feedback to the system controller via an industry-standard Ethernet/IP interface. Ethernet 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 well suited for material handling, automotive and general factory automation applications.

“Ethernet IP Encoders deliver basic resolution up to 8192 steps per revolution (13 bits) and up to 4096 revolutions (12 bits), for overall resolution up to 25 bits. These encoders provide a very high positional count value, which is ideal for precisely dividing very long traverse distances into small measurable values,” says Dave Rubinski, Product Manager.

Ethernet IP Encoders come in standard 58mm diameter housings, with a solid 10mm 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 addition to Ethernet/IP, Pepperl+Fuchs offers a complete family of encoders for CANopen-, DeviceNet-, PROFIBUS- and AS-Interface operation.
