Dynapar EtherCAT absolute encoders
The Hengstler AI25 absolute encoder product line now includes an EtherCAT interface. This allows users to integrate into almost any system that uses the EtherCAT communication protocol. The encoder offers cycle times of 62.5 μs and a 22-bit single-turn resolution with absolute accuracy of ±35 in, making the product suitable for applications requiring accurate real-time speed and position data such as robotics, packaging and high-end motion control. With 400-G shock and 30-G vibration ratings, the encoder also is suitable for rugged environments. Optional shaft seals and stainless steel housing offer increased protection.
