EtherCAT-ready absolute encoders Model A58HE (hollow bore) and Model A58SE (shaft) are designed for harsh factory and plant environments. Easily designed into a wide variety of applications, these encoders plug directly into a network with minimal prerequisites, and work in various configurations, including daisy-chaining and redundant-ring configurations that can continue communication in event of a line break.  The A58E series encoders work with CANopen over EtherCAT, so for users familiar with CANopen technology, implementation will be straight forward. As absolute encoders, they retain absolute position information even after a power loss, facilitating speedy system recovery at start-up without the need for system re-homing.
