Function: ESM58-PZ

Absolute rotary encoders deliver an absolute step value for each angle setting.

On account of the high number of measuring steps, this type of absolute rotary encoder can be used to divide very long linear distances into small measuring steps.

The Ethernet interface of this absolute encoder supports the Powerlink V2 protocol. An integrated hub allows wiring in a line structure (daisy chain).

In addition to various functions like resolution adjustment, rotation direction, node number setting or limit switch adjustment, the following operation modes can be selected:

  • Polled mode

  • Multiplexed mode

  • Poll Response chaining

The absolute encoder is mounted directly onto the application shaft, without any coupling. Rotation of the absolute encoder is prevented by a torque rest.
