A Step-by-step tutorial video to connect and configure a POSITAL IO-Link Encoder.

Step 1:

-Connect IO-Link Encoder

-Connect M12 Connector to M12 Connector Cable

Step 2:

-Connect IO-Link Master

-Connect to any IO-Link Class A Master Port

 Step 3:

-Power up the System

-Blinking Green LED on Encoder Indicates IO-Link Communication

Step 4:

-Start IO-Link Engineering Tool

-Connect to IO-Link Master 

-Connect to IO-Link Encoder

-Load IODD at First Connection

Step 5:

-Configure Encoder Position Value Resolution

-Click on ‘Parameter’

-Set Value in ‘Singleturn Resolution’

-Set Value in ‘Total Resolution’

-Write Configuration to Encoder

-Go to Monitoring Screen

-Configured Configuration of 10,000 Total Position Values is Applied

Step 6:

-Configure Encoder Total Position Preset Value

-Go to ‘Settings’

-Set Preset Value (example value ‘500’)

-Write Configuration to Encoder

-Apply Preset Value by Clicking on Button ‘Set position to PRESET Value’

-Go to Monitoring Screen

-Position Value of ‘500’ is Applied

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
