Posital’s Ixarc high-precision magnetic absolute rotary encoders are available with CANopen interfaces. Ixarc encoders with the CANopen communications interface are designed for applications in vehicles, mobile machinery, cranes, lifts and offshore equipment. The communication interface features the autobaud function, so these encoders can be directly connected to a CANopen network without the need to manually set transmission speeds. Diagnostic LEDs show device status. A variety of connection options are available, including cables of various lengths and radially or axially oriented M12 or M23 connectors. Housings with bus-in/bus-out connectors are available for applications where it is convenient to connect several devices in series (daisy chain). Single- and multi-turn models are available. For multi-turn versions, the rotation counter is self-powered, with no need for backup batteries.
