COMING SOON! Upgraded EtherNet/IP Interface for POSITAL Encoders

DCS Posital Upgraded EtherNet IP Infterface for Encoder 1 400

December 3, 2021


The updated EthernNet/IP communications interface helps optimize data transfer therefore minimizing downtime due to transmission delays. This improved protocol not only has advanced network management tools, it also supports a communications cap which allows installers to define the device’s IP address through a set of three rotary switches. High temperature warnings, monitored acceleration levels, and a time counter can all now be accessed through this upgrade. POSITAL’s implementation of this upgrade meets all requirements of the ODVA’s conformance testing.

DCS Posital Upgraded EtherNet IP Infterface for Encoder 2 400

Ethernet/IP was developed by ControlNet International (CI), the Industrial Ethernet Association (IEA) and the Open DeviceNet Vendor Association (ODVA) to be a common application-layer protocol for control systems based on Ethernet technology. Like ControlNet and DeviceNet; it is based on the CIP protocol that has become a widely accepted standard, e.g. in the automobile industry. For hard real-time applications the extended protocol CIP sync was specified. Ethernet/IP is a pure software based solution that does not require any specific ASICS. Detailed information is available under

EtherNet IP Rotary Encoder

The POSITAL provides Ethernet IP encoder as single-turn or multi-turn variant up to a resolution of 16 bit per revolution. The Ethernet / IP encoders are ideally suited for factory automation because many mechanical characteristics, as well as connector and cable outlets are available. In addition also Ex protected variants are available. The encoders can be perfectly adapted by various parameters setting to the individual requirements.

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.
