Leine & Linde's DRIVE-CLiQ Encoder
DRIVE-CLiQ encoder is designed for long-life operation in harsh drive environments where they are exposed to powerful vibrations, shocks and mechanical loads. DRIVE-CLiQ is Siemens' new communication protocol for motor feedback in a SINAMICS drive system. It is an Ethernet-based interface for connection of different kinds of components, such as motors, frequency converters and encoders. The encoder is designed for transfer of both position and speed data over the same protocol.
