Bogen’s “Absolute Starter Kit” with BiSS Interface

Bogen presents a starter set for a quick introduction to magnetic position and angle measurement technology: The Absolute Starter Kit contains a rotary and a linear scale, a sensor head that can be used for both scales and a programming interface for scale calibration via BiSS. Instructions and software are available for free download. The starter kit enables a simple and inexpensive entry into the world of absolute measuring technology in the μm range.

Miniature drives with BiSS

The brushless DC miniature and microdrives from FAULHABER use small absolute AESM encoder with BiSS interface for a robust and future-proof standard.
The AESM series absolute encoders from FAULHABER are very compact and fit even on miniaturised, brushless DC drives with a diameter of just 8 mm.

Beckhoff presents 2-channel BiSS-C interface EL5042

The 2-channel BiSS C interface for direct connection of BiSS C encoders is suitable for exact and fast positioning applications – with distributed clocks ensuring high synchronicity with other processes. Via unidirectional BiSS C communication, the EL5042 sends as a master the clock signal for position detection to the BiSS C slave (encoder), which returns the position data with up to 64-bit resolution. The EL5042 can be optimally adapted to different encoder types by selecting appropriate operation modes, transmission frequencies and frame widths.

The EtherCAT Terminal system is a modular I/O system consisting of electronic terminal blocks. The EtherCAT protocol remains fully intact down to the individual terminal. Beckhoff provides an extensive range of fieldbus components for all common I/O and fieldbus systems. The wide choice of I/O components means that the bus system best suited to the particular application can be chosen.
