Functional safe incremental encoders

Functional safe incremental encoders

The solution doesn't always have to be complicated. An incremental rotary encoder is just the ticket for the safe detection of speed, direction of rotation or stationary monitoring. The use of certified components makes us your one stop shop for complex application solutions. We offer the safety-certified incremental rotary encoder IE58+FS (Functional Safety). The user can choose between square-wave signals (with TTL or HTL level) and sine-cosine interface. The rotary encoder is SIL resp. PL certified. The rotary encoder allows for the operating modes SLS, SOS SSR, SDI and SSM in conjunction with an appropriate safety module. Depending on the safety module, applications fulfil SIL 3 resp. PLe requirements.

To fulfill the certified safety functions, the safety-oriented incremental rotary encoder IE58+FS is connected to a safety module, which then performs the relevant inspection. For the development and certification of the IE58+FS, modules from different manufacturers have been integrated and tested with the IE58+FS. The IE58+FS supplements the series of safety-oriented products with integrated safety (CD_75) with an important component for a modular safety concept, allowing the user to select the required evaluation module according to his or her requirements.
