EPC absolute encoders with Profinet

Sept. 19, 2019
Models A58HE and A58SE now offer Profinet I-O communication protocol

EPC's A58HE and A58SE models are Ethernet-ready, multi-turn absolute encoders designed for harsh factory and plant environments. In addition to EtherCAT deterministic communication, the models A58HE and A58SE now offer Profinet as well.

These encoders are designed to work where fieldbus connectivity is required, and the encoder has to retain absolute position information after power-off events. The A58HE is a 58mm encoder in a blind hollow bore construction, and the A58SE is a 58 mm shaft encoder available with either a clamping flange or synchro flange, in both compact and heavy-duty configurations.

Both absolute encoders offer EtherCAT deterministic communication or Profinet communication, multi-turn resolution up to 43 bits, single turn resolution up to 16 bits,  58mm diameter housing, bores sizes up to 0.375" or 15 mm, shaft diameters up to 0.375” or 12 mm, feature the ability to retain absolute position after a power outage and more.

The Profinet option on the A58SE and A58HE will be available October 1.
