June 14, 2017 - POSITAL’s IXARC magnetic absolute rotary encoders are now available with CANopen interfaces. This interface option is in addition to the previously announced SSI, EtherNet/IP, EtherCat, Powerlink, Profbus DP and Profinet interfaces.
Single- and multi-turn models are available. For multi-turn versions, the rotation counter is self-powered, with no need for backup batteries.
IXARC encoders with the CANopen communications interface are a choice for applications in vehicles, mobile machinery, cranes, lifts and offshore equipment. The communication interface features the autobaud function, so these encoders can be directly connected to a CANopen network without the need to manually set transmission speeds. Diagnostic LEDs show device status. A variety of connection options are available, including cables of various lengths and radially or axially oriented M12 or M23 connectors. Housings with bus-in/bus-out connectors are available for applications where it is convenient to connect several devices in series (daisy chain).
