Rotary encoder has fieldbus interfaces

Lawrenceville, N.J .—To enable the crucial function of selective, efficient communication among components (bus nodes) of automation facilities, the FRABA Group has designed a new family of encoders with fieldbus interfaces. This product range—named Posital—offers CANbus interface for CANopen and DeviceNet applications, along with Profibus-DP and Interbus.

Lawrenceville, N.J .—To enable the crucial function of selective, efficient communication among components (bus nodes) of automation facilities, the FRABA Group has designed a new family of encoders with fieldbus interfaces. This product range—named Posital—offers CANbus interface for CANopen and DeviceNet applications, along with Profibus-DP and Interbus. Standard Posital encoders come with basic resolution of 8,192 steps/rev (13 bit) max., while multi-turn models detect up to 4,096 revolutions (12 bit). Using intelligence of an onboard processor, functions beyond simple positioning can be added. www.fraba.com
