Single-Cable Connectivity for BiSS Line Kit Encoders

DCS POSITAL BiSS Line Encoder 1 400

December 3, 2021

 

The combination of single-cable connectivity and POSITAL’s cost-efficient kit encoders provides motor manufacturers and machine builders absolute position feedback for their devices in an economical and efficient way. A single-cable approach to motor connectivity reduces component count and simplifies installation procedures. By supporting both 2- and 4-wire implementations of the BiSS Line interface, POSITAL ensures compatibility with PLCs and controllers from most major manufacturers.

Applications

POSITAL’s kit encoders can provide a compact and economic solution for the elctrical motor and robotics industries. Their insensitivity to harsh working conditions and battery-less rotation counter make them ideal for a wide range of applications and uses that range from industrial robots to stepper and servo motors.

About the BiSS Interface

The BiSS Interface (bidirectional/serial/synchronous) protocol is an – Open Source – digital interface which enables a digital, serial and secure communication between controller, sensor and actuator.

The BiSS protocol is used on the lower sensor/actuator communication level in industrial applications which require transfer rates, safety, flexibility and a minimized implementation effort.

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.
