Rotary Encoder for Demanding Environments
Heidenhain (Schaumburg, IL) has introduced the
ROD 1930 rotary encoder series for use in mechani-cally-demanding motion control environments. The
ROD 1930 is available with HTL or HTLs outputs
which facilitates easier connection to many standard PLCs. Features include:
■ The ability to withstand radial shaft loads
of 200 N and axial shaft loads of 150 N.
■ An aluminum housing with a 120 mm
diameter, rated to IP 66.
■ Varied mounting configurations and
Baumer (Southington, CT) has expanded
its range of NextGen sensors with the new
O300 Series. Features include:
■ Insensitivity to ambient light.
■ A contactless teach-in method.
■ SmartReflect technology, which allows
the light barrier to work without
any separate reflector.
■ Background suppression.
The new Simatic S7-1500 controller family from Siemens Industry
(Chicago, IL) delivers performance and efficiency in mid- to
high-level automation applications. With integrated motion control,
security, and safety functions, the scalable line can be commissioned
with Siemens TIA Portal engineering software. Features include:
■ A fast backplane bus with a high baud rate and
efficient transmission protocol.
■ 2 built-in, stan-
■ Standard motion
■ Support for speed
and positioning axes,
as well as encoders.
■ A central Safety
Editor to help
define and modify
■ A standardized front connector with designed-in “pre-wiring"
■ A color display with detailed plain text information for full plant
