The BTL7 series transducers in rod and profile housings with an Ethernet interface offer multiple advantages for machine manufacturers and operators with respect to startup and machine output. Standardized communication protocols and automatic address assignment simplify integration of the transducers into the controller and the plant network. They can detect and process up to 16 position encoders. Two values can be output for each position encoder: position and the speed. Because of this, a single measurement can yield up to 32 measured values. Selectable real-time Ethernet interfaces include Profinet IRT, EtherCAT, and Varan. The portfolio includes a total of four transducer types: the classic rod housing for installation in the cylinder and three profile versions for flexible mounting on a machine. The profiles are divided into a square 36 mm x 36 mm design, an extremely flat profile with an overall height of 21 mm and a round profile 30-mm in diameter.
