Second generation PROFINET encoders made by TR Electronic support the most recent encoder profile V4.2 issued by PI. In addition to RT applications, our encoders also support IRT (for isochronous real time) including an Isochronous Mode Application. A suitable configuration of the network´s topology (e.g. in TIA Portal) guarantees easy commissioning and replacement of the encoder. Fast startup and media redundancy protocol respectively provide either a minimized startup time to operational or a highly machine availability.
Reset to factory settings is possible with an optional reset switch on the encoder.
TR’s absolute rotary encoders may be equiped with an additional, secondary interface, e.g. SSI, INC. Encoders provide fractional gearbox parameters (numerator / denominator) for almost any reproduction of gearbox factors for exact detection of closed rotary axes. Absolute adjustments (also called “preset“ or “offset adjustment“) can be performed synchronously with the control cycle even while the system is in cyclic operation.
TR’s second generation PROFINET encoders are available in a wide range of shaft and flange versions. Further, interface connectivity may be oriented both in axial or radial directions.
adapter plugs ensure compatibility
The customers of TR-Electronic know exactly - the solutions they choose are durable. This applies both to the use of the extremely robust sensors in industry and to the possibility of obtaining functionally compatible replacement solutions even after years. Sometimes it only takes a little bit to use the latest generation of encoders in existing applications. The first, compact rotary encoders for the now established 58 mm industrial standard were equipped with M8 power supply connections.
The widespread M12 connector is now also established here. Big advantage are: the manufacturer-independent availability of pre-assembled cables and possibility, to assemble connectors on site. That is why the latest generation of absolute rotary encoders from TR are also uniformly equipped with M12 connectors for the bus and supply. This also applies to the absolute rotary encoders with through hollow shafts of 27 mm (CEH80) or 50 mm (CEH110) diameter.
But what happens in a system in which cable harnesses for the first generation with M8 supply are laid?
A little helper from the range of accessories solves the connection problems elegantly:On one side, an M8 connector receives the supply voltage and forwards it pin-compatible on the other side via M12 to the latest-generation rotary encoder.
It does not matter whether it is a traditional Profibus or PROFINET, Ethernet/IP, EtherCAT, Powerlink encoder - the mechanically robust adapter reliably connects supply lines with M8 with the M12 connector installed on the encoder side.
- Tool-free adaptation from M8 to M12 supply
- Use existing cable harnesses in conjunction with the latest generation of encoders
- mechanically reliable connection solution
- Useful helper for spare parts and retrofit
- For all applications where a C__582 is to replace a C__58 (1st generation)
- Also for the migration from CEH80 and CEH110 to CEH802 and CEH1102
