POWERLINK Encoder

The new generation of POWERLINK encoder is based on a FPGA solution. The same design has been achieved at almost the same cost as the Fieldbus design. This new platform is introduced with the Powerlink interface.

Network Integration
The connection cap (IP67), as an integral part of the encoder provides a reliable connection using standardized M12 connector. Two externally accessible hex-coded address switches, which also offer IP67 protection, allow an easy adjustment of the host ID in the Net ID. This reduces maintenance and simplifies installation for the network administrator. With the integrated hub and thanks to extremely short delay times even longer line structures can be implemented. The diagnostic LEDs indicate the status of traffic or link to the respective port connection and the network status of the device.

POWERLINK Features
Cycle times can be up to 400 µs or reach with a low asynchronous data traffic up to 240 µs. Besides the classical polling mode, in which the master (Managing Node) polls each slave (Controlled Node), the POSITAL encoders support the modes "Poll response chaining" and "Poll multiplexing". This expansion of the operating modes allows the customers to implement the new interface design efficient to custom applications in time-critical areas and increase the bandwidth significantly. The encoder profile DS-406 CANopen has been ported to POWERLINK.

CEV 58M POWERLINK

Absolute rotary encoders in size 58 are now available with POWERLINK.
TR-Electronic is at the forefront again, when it comes to supporting your communication networks and controller families. With modern Industrial Ethernet systems, the rotary encoders deliver the necessary actual values so quickly that even axis control over the network is not a problem. The speed requirements of the respective control systems are fully met.
With solid shaft and blind shaft, the 58 mm series can be adapted to different machine configurations. In addition to the usual synchronous and clamping flange configurations, different versions are available as standard. TR-Electronic can also provide suitable shaft and flange combinations in inch-based dimensions for the US market without problem; UL listing is optionally possible. In the CEV58 and CES58 the resolution per revolution is 32768 steps (15 bits), and 256000 revolutions are detected without batteries or counters. The COV58 and COS58 offer a higher resolution, with up to 262144 steps per revolution (18 bits). The output resolution in the POWERLINK network can be parameterized with adjustment to the respective application. The M12 plugs are axially arranged, so that the connector cables do not protrude beyond the flange diameter of 58 mm. Two bus connections with an integrated hub support the direct linking of POWERLINK nodes in a line topology; just like the customary wiring in the field. Further products from TR-Electronic with POWERLINK are non-contact and wear-free linear measuring systems, which e.g. can be integrated directly into hydraulic cylinders in a flameproof design or can be mounted in or on machinery, thanks to their profiled housing.
