Recording of the angular position and revolutions by means of Hall sensors - absolute multiturn transmission for up to 4096 revolutions - data output plus parameterisation and diagnosis via EtherCAT. Robust housing manufactured from seawater-resistant aluminium or stainless steel - stainless steel shaft - ball bearing with radial shaft seal-sensor circuit consisting of ASIC with Hall elements - electrical connection via M12 connector or cable outlet. In the model series TRK absolute encoders, the EtherCAT interface is integrated according to IEC 61158-2 to 6 and encoder profile CiA DSP406.
To achieve the SIL2 level, the TRK/S3 contains a redundant sensor system and additional internal monitoring mechanisms as well as safe communication via the FSoE (failsave over EtherCAT) protocol. The FSoE protocol is implemented according to the Safety over EtherCAT specification ETG.5100 version 1.2.0.
