Encoders with safe hollow shaft connection ensure plant availability

heidenhain0217Experience the encoder Of the ECN 400, EQN 400 and ERN 480 series, Heidenhain now also offers a safe hollow shaft connection and mechanical fault exclusion. This avoids errors such as the slipping of a frictional connection, which can not be detected by the controller. Machine and plant builders can implement systems with high safety ratings with the new rotary encoders.

Trip cam for the flexible position feedback of rotary actuators.

ifm10217provides for reliable feedback of the valve position of rotary actuators IFM Electronic now new switching cams , which are compatible with drives according to the VDI / VDE 3845. The switch points are fixedly (90 °) or now freely adjustable in angle. The position of the damping elements can be freely selected. The position indicator shows the valve position is clearly visible even from a distance.
