EM58 PA Fully Programmable Absolute Encoder

Top Quote The EM58 PA is suitable for installation in a variety of industrial applications including in construction vehicles, construction equipment, building material machines, cranes, portal cranes and hoists, as well as integration into cable pulling mechanisms, such as Lika's recently unveiled SF- series draw-wire unit.

  • (1888PressRelease) September 06, 2014 - Control Devices are pleased to announce the recent introduction of Lika Electronic's new EM58 PA fully programmable absolute analogue encoder into the Australasian market.

    The EM58 PA can be programmed to scale any value exactly as needed, in a range between very small fractions of a turn (with 12-bit single turn resolution) up to 16,384 turns, for an overall max. 16-bit resolution (65536 information), with 0,02 accuracy.

    A well-known linear or angular displacement can be precisely entered by setting a value ranging between 21 and 226. Any axis travel can be defined by simply setting the start and stop reference points with two mouse clicks, thanks to Lika's user-friendly Teach-in procedure.

    The encoder offers a full range of voltage and current outputs which can be programmed according to individual requirements: 0 to 5V, 0 to 10V, -5 to +5V, -10 to +10V, 4 to 20mA, 0 to 24mA and 4 to 24mA.

    The EM58 PA joins the Lika HM58 PS 32-bit absolute programmable encoder with SSI serial output and HM58 PY-PN 28-bit absolute programmable encoder with bit parallel Push-Pull or NPN output.

    The EM58 PA can be easily and freely programmed from any Windows pc using a software tool developed by Lika Electronic and offered at no charge. Connection to the encoder simply requires a USB serial cable pre-wired to mate with M23 12-pin and M12 12-pin connectors (cable option is also available). The software tool provides further multiple benefit features, allowing the user:

    - to set the overrun mode: signal level is kept low/high outside the set axis travel
    - to set counting direction and zero-setting (hardware inputs also available)
    - to scale whatever cyclic travel, even though not a power of 2, aside from the physical resolution of the encoder, without hitting any counting errors
    - The Fault output is designed to warn against a circuit interruption when the current output is selected.

    The EM58 PA employs optical technology, thus is insensitive to magnetic fields and does not require batteries. Output connection can be either radial or axial for both cable and connector options.

    Mechanically, it features standard 58-mm flange diameter housing with IP67 protection (IP65 on shaft side) and both hollow ( 14, 15 mm) and solid ( 6, 8, 9.52, 10, 11, 12 mm) shafts. A wide variety of mounting solutions are available for quick, safe and low-cost installation.
