ENCODER PRODUCTS COMPANY INTRODUCES THE PROGRAMMABLE MODEL 25SP ENCODER

The Model 25SP Programmable Size 25 Accu-CoderPro™ shaft encoder is specifically designed for the challenges of an industrial environment.

SAGLE, Idaho: Encoder Products Company (EPC), a leading designer and worldwide manufacturer of motion sensing devices, has introduced the all new Model 25SP - a programmable encoder in the industry-standard Size 25 package (2.5" x 2.5", or 63.5 mm). Contained within the rugged, industrial housing of the Model 25SP is an advanced set of electronics that allow the encoder to be programmed for exact application needs.

Programmable CPR, Output Type, & Waveform
Using EPC's optional programming module, users may select from six output types, choose from 32 different waveforms, and program any resolution from 1 to 65,536 CPR - that's 262,144 counts using 4x quadrature counting. These programming features allow a single encoder to be configured for multiple applications, enabling one encoder to replace many different part numbers, and providing cost savings on inventory and down-time replacement.

"What really sets the Model 25SP apart is the number of configuration options. With so many different connectors, waveforms, and CPRs to choose from, it's the most versatile programmable Size 25 shaft encoder you'll find," explains Steve Dilts, Business Development Manager.

Designed for Industrial Environments
The Model 25SP Accu-CoderPro™ has an industrial housing; it comes standard with dual bearings rated 80lbs axial or radial, so it can handle heavy-duty applications; and it can be specified with up to IP67 sealing, to keep it working in challenging environments. With a variety of mounting options, shaft sizes, and connector types to choose from, it's configurable enough to fit into almost any application.

Applications
The Model 25SP is a versatile, cost-effective solution for rotary feedback in many industrial and non-industrial applications, such as: conveyors, elevator controls, machine control, food processing, process control, robotics, material handling, and textile machines, and many other motion control feedback applications. Anywhere a standard Size 25 shaft encoder fits, the Model 25SP will get the job done.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
