Rotary Encoders with Functional Safety [Movie]

Rotary encoders with functional safety are becoming more important in factory automation applications. Certified safety rotary encoders from Pepperl+Fuchs enable simple integration in applications with high safety categories up to SIL3 (in accordance with IEC 61508).

 In this example, a safety relevant application is shown. The certified, functionally safe rotary encoder detects the rotational motion of a pipe-cutting saw. The rotary encoder provides safe operation of the machine, as required in accordance with the standards listed in the machinery directive 98/37EG and also in accordance with the new directive 2006/42/EG and IEC 61800-5-2.
