Optical Rotary Encoder with Ethernet POWERLINK Interface


Real-Time Interface

Ethernet POWERLINK is an open and completely software based solution that is promoted by the EPSG (Ethernet POWERLINK Standardization Group). It is a real-time protocol that is based on the CANopen back bone. The encoders from FRABA POSITAL have a jitter for synchronization that is less than 1 micro seconds.

New Encoder from MicroE Systems’ Is World’s Smallest with Nanometer Resolution


MicroE Systems’ new Mercury II™ 6000 series of encoders sets a new benchmark for small sensor size with high resolution and accuracy. The sensor is only 8.2mm high, weights just 3 grams and provides output resolution as fine as 1.2 nanometers. The small, high-performance encoder system will enable a broad range of new capabilities in compact motion control stages and positioners through a combination of accurate nanometer-level positioning, compact system design, and unprecedented affordability for this level of performance.

OCD II CANopen – High Performance Absolute Rotary Encoder


High Performance - The new OCD II CANopen series has been designed to be more compact and have better performance. Like all OPTOCODE encoders, the new models use a tried and tested optoelectronic scanning method to record positional values. The single-turn sensor provides a resolution of up to 16 bit per revolution (0.05º) and the Multi-turn unit registers a maxi-mum of 16,384 revolutions (14 bit), thereby covering an overall measuring range of 30 bit. Use of a fully integrated CAN controller has optimized the architecture and reduced the cost.

Optical Sensor for Rotational Speed Measurement of Large and Hollow Shafts


Hamilton, New Jersey - OPTIPACT motion sensors from FRABA provide an innovative and easy-to-implement way of determining rota-tional or translational velocities of machinery or product in a wide variety of applications. OPTIPACT sensors are built around an optical system similar to a digital camera: the velocity of a moving object is determined by monitoring the rate at which an image of the object travels across the surface of the optical sensor.
