Kubler Releases new Profinet Encoder

Posted in: Product News on October 19th, 2011

Kubler has recently launched their new range of Sendix 5858/5878 (Single-turn) and Sendix 5868/5888 (Multi-turn) absolute encoders with Profinet interface.  These encoders interface with the Profinet interface with the complete encoder profile according to “Profile Encoder Version 4.1” as well as the Identification & Maintenance Functionality in Version 1.16″ (IM blocks 0, 1, 2, 3 and 4).


The new range of encoders also support Isochronous Real-Time Mode (IRT-Mode).  IRT-Mode offers a high performance real time communications via a decoupling of the real-time communication from the standard TCP/IP communication.


Other features of the new encoder include:

  • Short cycle time of >= 1msec.
  • Plug and Play start-up thanks to the “Ezturn for Profinet” software supplied with the encoder.
  • Possibility to easily expand the characteristics of the encoder without having to disassemble the encoder.
  • Scaling and preset values, as well as many additional parameters, can be programmed via the Profinet-Bus.
  • The Ezturn software allows the display of the main parameters for monitoring purposes.
  • Position, speed and many other states of the encoder can be transmitted as output values.


Visual warning and alarm signals advise of sensor faults, under voltage or over temperature.  Diagnostics data can be transferred via the standard Ethernet interface to a laptop in the field to make fault diagnostics faster and simpler.


The single turn encoders are available with resolutions up to 16-bits, and the multi-turn encoders up to 26-bits.
