The new EtherNet/IP encoders are available in both singleturn (RS-107/108) and mul- titurn (RM-105/106) variants and come with a diameter of 58 mm, o er a total reso- lution of up to 32 bits (16 for singleturn, 16 for multiturn), and have been designed speci cally for high-speed applications. The encoders o er an RPI (requested packet interval) time of 1 ms, and allows operation in high-speed applications with up to a 1,000 Hz update frequency. These features allow users to save time and costs.
The RS-107/108 and RM-105/106 EtherNet/IP encoders o er a cost e ective, com- pact EtherNet/IP encoder solution with Device Level Ring (DLR) capability. The DLR capabilities allow the network to stay active even if one direction of the communica- tion bus lines is compromised. This is a bi-directional communication capability built into the encoder. For the customer it means that their process can continue while one unit is o -line, greatly in uencing e ciency and reducing costly down-time.
The RS-107/108 and RM-105/106 encoders are available in solid shaft and blind hol- low shaft versions, with the blind shaft version having diameters up to 15 mm. The encoders feature an operating temperature range from -40 to +80 °C and are IP65 rated. Additionally, thanks to their optical design, the encoders are highly immune to interference from magnetic fields.
