Harsh-environment rotary encoders with Profinet
The Leine & Linde 900 rotary encoder series provides absolute position measurements for equipment used in harsh environments. The product family, which offers EnDat, Profibus, EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT and Drive-CLiQ interfaces, now includes a Profinet interface, which has found broad application in heavy-equipment automation. The series’ inductive scanning principle endures such conditions as high temperatures, moisture, vibration and shock without compromising resolution and accuracy. The 900 series supports a variety of mechanical interfaces, including taper and keyed shafts and hollow shafts with keyways. It is available with dual output for achieving both absolute and incremental signals.
