Magnetic absolute CANopen encoder

At the SPS IPC Drives fair, Baumer (Switzerland) presents its Magres magnetic absolute encoder generation. The encoders come with two CANopen outputs.

The encoder generation Magres EAM580 and EAM360 come with a maximum angular accuracy of 0,15°. This ensures reliability and precise positioning for ultimate process control, which previously often required optical encoders. The multi-purpose encoder family in 58 mm and 36 mm size includes product variants in mechanical design, connection technology, and interface connectivity offering users flexibility. EAM580, with Profinet supporting the latest communication standards and OPC UA, is prepared to make IoT a reality.

The encoder-integrated firmware was designed to comply with EN 13849 requirements. Functional safety systems up to PL-d level are allowed to integrate the encoders as standard components. The encoders are available with redundant sensing and output two position values via CANopen for plausibility evaluation in the master controller. Integer part of the magnetic encoder generation is the R series with EAM580R and EAM360R. The E1-compliant design for electromagnetic compatibility, with IP67 protection and C5-M corrosion resistance, is durable in outdoor use, for example in mobile automation. In addition, their 0,5-mm2 wire core cross-section is fully compatible to automotive connection technology.
