Safety Sine/Cosine Rotary Encoder Replaces Mechanical Safety Solutions
Additional absolute track provides information on start commutation
Decentralized SIL3/PLe safety solution consisting of safety encoder and speed monitor
Make the decision to use safe individual components that fulfill the safety requirements outlined in the current Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC!
The new RVK58S sine/cosine rotary encoder provides a valuable service during the development of
The high-resolution sensor achieves
A special ASIC that is responsible for self-diagnosis is also used for signal conditioning. The supply voltage, temperature, LED activation and checksum of the calibration data are monitored. If a fault occurs, the integrated electronics switch the encoder outputs to high impedance, which means that the fault can be detected via lead breakage detection. The features of the new RVK58S rotary encoder make a significant contribution to simplifying the development of safe machines and render traditional concepts incorporating mechanical safety solutions superfluous.
The RVK58S fits seamlessly into the modern safety concept and allows machine constructors and system builders to provide proof of conformity with the Performance Level (PL) or Safety Integrity Level (SIL).
