Being able to read signals from a large number of different position encoders is nothing new to the B&R ACOPOSmulti drive family. Now, this already extensive range of products is once again being expanded to include a brand new member: an interface card for BiSS encoders. This new addition presents customers with yet another option from a wide range of measuring systems for selecting the position encoder best suited to the application at hand.
The fully digital BiSS bidirectional sensor interface is an open and license-free communication standard that allows sensor data to be read synchronously, securely and quickly. The new BiSS interface features high-speed data transfer with excellent error detection properties.
This makes the BiSS encoder interface especially well suited for demanding applications such as integrating fully digital hollow shaft encoders with large internal diameters or implementing robust absolute or linear measurement systems with high-speed movements.
The BiSS interface plug-in card is a logical addition to the wide range of ACOPOS plug-in encoder modules and opens up new possibilities for tackling demanding automation projects.
