ifm introduces new, intelligent incremental encoders for industrial applications
ifm’s new, intelligent PerformanceLine encoders are extremely versatile due to their programmable resolution, selectable output signal and IO-Link compatibility. Our encoders use magnetic technology, providing the accuracy of traditional optical glass encoders with the robustness of magnetic encoders.
The PerformanceLine encoder provides a dual color (red/green) digital display for at-a-glance monitoring and allows for easy programming via pushbuttons. With ifm’ new encoders, there is no need to stock multiple encoders!
Because the PerformanceLine encoders are programmable, you can program the resolution needed for each application from 1 to 9999, based on your application’s needs. They are also versatile, offering a choice of HTL or TTL output.
ifm’s PerformanceLine also features multifunctional capabilities. It can be configured to perform in three different capacities; as an encoder, a counter and a speed/direction monitor.
Ready for the future, the PerformanceLine encoder is equipped with an IO-Link interface for Digital Factory 4.0 operations. The IO-Link interface enables direct access to process and diagnostic data, allowing you to parametize during operations, reducing downtime.
ifm encoders are available in hollow and solid shaft designs of varying diameters and are offered with an M12-connector or 2-meter cable. We also provide different flange options.
Our PerformanceLine encoders are offered at an unbeatable price/performance ratio with a starting list price of $238.00.
