Demanding applications such as handling and assembly, graphic machines or packaging machines require high precision in real time with minimal cycle time and minimal jitter. Extended with the "EAL580 Ethercat" series Baumer its portfolio of compact Ethernet absoluteencoder, With 62,5 μs cycle time, these are suitable for fast and high-precision applications. In addition, they are unsurpassed compact with a mounting depth of only 47 mm.
The EAL580 series with Ethercat is developed and certified according to the latest CAN open standard 4.0.2. Commissioning is simple and intuitive, especially with the Twincat control software. The assignment of the device address is automatic and time-saving. With a permanently IP67-encapsulated button, the preset value can be set directly on the device. With File over Ethercat (FoE) support, firmware expansions can be made easily and directly from the controller.
The flexible operating modes Free Run, Synchron Mode and Distributed Clocks allow optimal adaptation to the application. Thanks to dynamic PDO mapping, it is possible to select predefined combinations of cyclic data. In addition to cyclic data such as position and speed, diagnostic values such as device temperature and number of operating hours are also output for the new devices. With the gear factor or rotary axis function and the conveniently usable endless operation, the control system is relieved of complex calculations.
With the smallest installation depth in the class of 58 mm-Ethernet encoders is the EAL580 series Its compact design not only makes it particularly economical, but also offers maximum freedom for the machine design. Due to the lack of need for angle plugs particularly space-saving designs can be realized and additional costs for angled plugs omitted. Thanks to the radial plug outlet, tight bending radii in the cable are a thing of the past.
The EAL580 is the only compact 58 mm rotary encoder with through hollow shaft and either A or B side clamping ring. As a result, it can be optimally integrated into a powertrain and saves awkward additional designs. In addition to Ethercat, the encoder also supports Profinet. Ethernet / IP is already being implemented.
