Encoder with EtherCAT interface.

Hengstler has extended their ACURO® AC58 product line with the widely-used EtherCAT interface. The number of systems using this open, powerful, Ethernet-based system continues to grow at a rapid pace.

With the availability of the ACURO® AC58, incorporating an EtherCAT interface, users can integrate one of the foremost absolute encoders on the market, into virtually any system that uses EtherCAT technology. This simplifies the design process and guarantees reliable communication. Hengstler's ACURO® AC58 EtherCAT encoder is naturally attested by an official compliance certificate issued by the EtherCAT Technology Group (ETG).

ACURO AC58 EtherCAT delivers reliable communication, extended temperature range, protection rating up to IP67, and extremely high shock and vibration specifications are just some of the outstanding characteristics of the AC58 EtherCAT. This flexibility makes the Hengstler ACURO® AC58 one of the most versatile encoders on the market. Its robustness specifications are particularly impressive. A stainless steel version is also available as an ordering option. This makes it suitable for use even in the harshest environmental conditions.

Values are updated with a cycle time down to 62.5 µs, making it one of the fastest encoders on the market, and allowing customers to implement highly dynamic processes. Device configurations like a residual value function for rotary indexing machines add to the range of application capabilities.
