Motion Control Machine Building encoder Leine & Linde

LEINE & LINDE adds Ethernet/IP to encoder product lines.

15-Nov-LL-encoder-625Leine & Linde announced that its assortment of encoders now support the open EtherNet/IP industrial network protocol. For example, the company’s 1000 series now supports EtherNet/IP and provides a wide range of encoder configurations including incremental, absolute, and combinations of these. Similarly, its 900 series encoders with EtherNet/IP provide incremental outputs while its 58mm 600 series with EtherNet/IP are designed demanding environments where space is an issue. The addition of a gateway, which enables connection via EtherNet/IP for EnDat encoders, allows the integrator to use encoders capable of withstanding ambient temperature up to 100°C, while the connections to EtherNet/IP can be physically located hundreds of feet away. Moreover, encoders can be replaced without interrupting communications since network contact is still maintained via the gateway function.
