A digital interface makes it possible to directly use the new encoder kits from Lenord + Bauer on a range of control systems (e.g. Mitsubishi CNC). The variable platform allows rapid adjustments without the need to modify hardware. In addition to the speed data acquired, the encoder kits also output warning messages and alarms, enabling malfunctions to be detected at an early stage. They transmit the data to the control system by means of transformer-specific serial protocols.
The new MiniCODER generation is a logical extension of Lenord + Bauer’s i3SAAC product strategy. It features integrated, intelligent and interactive sensors as well as autonomous actuators and controllers that in future will not only deliver measured values or execute movements, but also supply functions and additional information. The higher-level instance, such as a central control system, receives the required information as targeted, pre-processed data.
