Allen-Bradley: New CIP Safety Encoders Help Improve Productivity

March 2, 2020

New Allen-Bradley 843ES CIP Safety over EtherNet/IP Absolute Encoders can meet the needs of safety applications that require speed, direction or position-monitoring functions and, at the same time, help users be more productive.

The encoders are the first on the market on CIP Safety over EtherNet/IP capable of up to – and including – SIL 3/PLe safety applications. The encoders can achieve this performance when used as part of an integrated safety system that includes an 
Allen-Bradley GuardLogix 5580 controller or Compact GuardLogix 5380 controller.

In addition to the safety features, the new encoders can also deliver:

  • Higher productivity: Users can continue production while safely monitoring for speed, direction or position to improve overall productivity.
  • Better visibility: By integrating safety with standard control systems, operators gain access to all machine events, including safety events, to shorten response times.
  • Reduced design times: Integrating safety functions over EtherNet/IP can reduce hardware and installation costs and save time.
  • More efficient system designs: Auxiliary feedback through an EtherNet/IP network on CIP Safety delivers the desired safety integrity and performance with fewer necessary components.

Users and machine builders can find the right 843ES CIP Safety Encoder for their needs with three configurable resolution options, solid and hollow shafts, and a range of flange options. With both safety and flexibility, the encoders can satisfy needs in a range of industries, including entertainment, material handling, mining and automotive manufacturing.
