Baumer offers a family of Ethernet-ready encoders designed to interface seamlessly with EtherCAT, Profinet, PowerLink and Ethernet/IP controllers. The Baumer line also includes "power over EtherCAT" encoder products that require only a single cable for data exchange and power supply. This product portfolio supports all common industrial Ethernet interfaces and includes shaft or hollow-shaft configurations. Magnetic or optical sensing technologies are available along with single- and multi-turn capabilities. Magnetic encoders are optimally suited for applications in harsh, dusty or damp environments and are capable of withstanding exposure to high shock (300 Gs) and high vibration. Automated applications include packaging, material handling and other industrial process control applications.
