Position encoders

By Staff June 15, 2007

Position encoders with an EnDat 2.2 transmission component — an exclusive digital, bi-directional interface — are available to be a part of a safe drive. The modular systems can provide the benefits of serial data transfer such as optimization of costs, diagnostics, automatic commissioning and rapid formation of the position value in safety-related applications. The design allows systems to be designed with only one encoder per axis, provided that the encoder complies with requirements for reliability of the transmitted position value. The EnDat 2.2 offers a maximum transmission frequency of 16 MHz.
