The Model A58HE is an EtherCAT-ready, multi-turn absolute encoder designed for harsh factory and plant environments. It is particularly suited to applications where Ethernet-based connectivity is required, and the encoder must retain position information after power-off events. Easily designed into a wide variety of system applications, the A58HE plugs directly into your network with minimal provisioning for rapid deployment, facilitating data exchange among myriad networked devices. The Model A58HE retains absolute position information even after a power loss, facilitating speedy system recovery at start-up without the need for system re-homing.
Ready for Industry 4.0 and for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), data exchange between the Model A58HE and other applications has no influence on the control loop. The Model A58HE is non-reactive and can work independently from the PLC or master, transferring data through network gateways to other automation networks and sites, and up to the cloud for analysis.
