High-Resolution EtherNet/IP Encoder

April 29, 2020

Offering rugged and reliable performance combined high resolution and repeatability, the AI25 EtherNet/IP absolute encoder features a stainless-steel housing, wide input voltage and temperature ranges, industry-leading 400G shock and 30G vibration ratings, and high shaft speeds.


The single-turn and multi-turn models are available with up to 22-bit single-turn and 12-bit multi-turn resolution and high accuracy within a full suite of shafted and hub shaft variants. 


The Device Level Ring (DLR) feature provides network fault tolerance. Other critical functions such as Address Conflict Detection (ACD) and RPI (Request Packet Interval) speeds of up to 1ms combine to ensure network speed and reliability is optimized to maximize operational uptime. The encoder has been certified by the Open DeviceNet Vendor Association (ODVA) for conformance.


The AI25 EtherNet/IP encoder supports a wide range of configuration options, making it the solution for position and speed feedback applications in a variety of industries including packaging, material handling, printing, and paper machinery, metal cutting and forming, wood processing and general factory automation. Optional shaft seals and IP67 ratings are available for increased protection.
