DRIVE-CLiQ in the 600 series

Leine & Linde introduced Siemens communication protocol DRIVE-CLiQ in the 900-series in 2012 and is now presenting the interface in the inductive 600 encoder series for applications requiring a robust Ø58 mm absolute encoder.

The DRIVE-CLiQ encoder is designed for transfer of both position and speed data over the same protocol. The scanning generates absolute position data, which means that each step of the turn is represented by a unique code - both singleturn for the exact position of the shaft, and multiturn for the number of full revolutions.
