PROFINET Gateway – extends possibilites
Gateway products extend the possibilities of using robust absolute encoders in high temperatures and harsh environmental conditions.
Gateways also allow for exchanging the encoders without interrupting bus communication to other nodes in the network, which reduces overall downtime. This solution is available for CANopen, DeviceNet, PROFIBUS, and now also PROFINET interfaces.
PROFINET is well-suited for the data exchange with bus cycle times of a few ms. The PROFINET Gateway can be used with any EnDat signal encoder and is ordered from Leine & Linde.
