An Absolute Encoder with PROFINET by EPC

An Absolute Encoder with PROFINET by EPC

EPC recognizes the need to keep their components up to speed with technology as more and more industrial applications switch to Industrial Ethernet.  As a result, they’ve introduced Absolute Encoders with both EtherCAT and PROFINET communication protocols, including Model A58HE and Model A58SE.  These two models are Ethernet-ready, multi-turn absolute encoders designed for harsh factory and plant environments.  These absolute encoders from Encoder Products Company are specifically suited for applications where Ethernet-based connectivity is required and the encoder has to retain absolute position information after power-off events.
