New EtherNet/IP Encoders For High-Speed Applications From Turck

Turck has announced the availability of EtherNet/IP enabled encoders. These encoders provide an optical based solution with electronic multi-turn capabilities for position applications requiring feedback for customers using the EtherNet/IP and common industrial protocol interface.

The new EtherNet/IP encoders are available in both singleturn and multiturn variants, come with a diameter of 58 mm, offer a total resolution of up to 32 bits (16 for singleturn, 16 for multiturn), and have been designed specifically for high-speed applications. Allowing users to save time and cost, the encoders offer a requested packet interval time of 1 ms and allow operation in high-speed applications with up to a 1,000 Hz update frequency.

The RS-107/108 and RM-105/106 EtherNet/IP encoders offer Device Level Ring, allowing the network to stay active even if one direction of the communication bus lines is compromised. This is a bi-directional communication capability built into the encoder, meaning processes can continue while one unit is off-line. Additionally, due to their optical design, the encoders are highly immune to interference from magnetic fields.
