Comprehensive networking and open communication between systems are the driving force for the next technological advances in industrial automation. The increasing demand for the production of products and the implementation of additional functions in production systems, along with the demand for competitive pricing, calls for intelligent and adaptive production systems that effortlessly communicate with each other. Speaking a common language in this diverse world of industrial automation is where TR Electronic continues to thrive..
TR-Electronic absolute positioning sensors with Industrial Ethernet provide the information highway to the executing component of the machine or system. PROFINET, EtherCAT, Ethernet/IP or Powerlink, available in the absolute rotary encoder or an absolute linear measuring system, deliver position data directly to the control unit. A plant component is no longer a black box, controlled with just a few binary signals and always doing the same task. Relevant data is directly available for linking processes. The compact absolute rotary encoders in the CE_58 series measure up to 32768 steps per revolution with 256000 revolutions, and can be integrated seamlessly into PROFINET, EtherCAT, Ethernet/IP, Powerlink or SERCOS. The LA/LP46 linear absolute measuring systems can measure positions up to 4 m without contact, and wear-free. The moving part, a permanent magnet, does not require a supply lead. The LA46 series, with its pressure-resistant tubular housing, can be directly installed into hydraulic cylinders. The LP46 series has its own profiled housing and can thus be optimally mounted on machines and systems. These systems also support PROFINET, EtherCAT, Ethernet/IP, Powerlink and SERCOS.
