Heidenhain Corp. (Schaumburg, IL) has introduced
the ROC/ROQ 400 series PROFIBUS rotary
encoders that support the DP-V2 encoder profile
for robot control and production technology. The
encoders with 58-mm housing diameter feature
M12 or M23 input connectors and flange sockets
for easier cable connections. M12 flange sockets
allow the use of preassembled standard cables.
Absolute rotary encoders with PROFIBUS comprise
single-turn and multi-turn versions, and can be configured
and parameterized for specific applications.
The encoders support the functions of Conformance Class 4 (full scaling and preset functions),
and offer Ethernet-based real-time and IT communication.
