Leine & Linde introduced its Model 862 with PROFIBUS DP, a heavy duty incremental encoder that incorporates the PROFIBUS DP communication interface. Working in tandem with the traditional incremental output signals, the PROFIBUS communications can also support velocity feedback, over-speed alarm limits, operating temperature, heartbeat counters, position presets, standstill detection and time, count up direction, internal diagnostics, operating time, and encoder configuration details. High Voltage/High Current TTL outputs are provided on the Incremental output channels and the encoder is isolated from the shaft up to 2.5kV. Hybrid ceramic bearings are used to provide this isolation as well as extended operating life. The encoder is rated for operation with a 9 to 30 volt power supply from -40°C to +80°C.
