Leine & Linde Now Offers Siemens DRIVE-CLiQ Interface With Model 600 Encoder

SCHAUMBURG, IL--(Marketwired - June 26, 2014) - Leine & Linde introduced the use of Siemens DRIVE-CLiQ communication protocol into its rotary encoder product line in 2012, and is now offering this interface in its inductive 600 absolute rotary encoder series.

DRIVE-CLiQ is an Ethernet-based protocol which interfaces with SINAMICS control systems. With a speed of 100 Mbit/s and a cycle time of 31.25 μs, DRIVE-CLiQ has the performance required for demanding applications. Motion control system components with DRIVE-CLiQ are automatically configured with each other since every component has an electronic label.

Leine & Linde's model IHA 608 encoder with DRIVE-CLiQ has a singleturn resolution of 19 bits, with mechanical gear based multiturn resolution of 12 bits. The encoders are available with a synchro flange or a clamping flange. For solid-shaft encoders, both 6 mm and 10 mm are available with or without a flat, and a blind hollow-shaft with 12mm bore is also available. The IHA 608 comes in an anodized Aluminum housing with protection up to IP67.

An 8-pin M12 radial flange socket is used for electrical connection of the rotary encoder, with power supply and data in the same connector. Ready-made cables with 3, 6, 15, and 30 meters are available for direct attachment to the SINAMIC control.

Leine & Linde is based in Sweden with exclusive North American distribution through HEIDENHAIN Corporation in Schaumburg, IL. Leine & Linde is well known for offering high quality, heavy duty encoders of both the incremental and absolute types, are noted for their product robustness and design to cope with the harshest of environments, such as those with high vibration, dirt and cold temperatures. These heavy, severe duty encoders are suited for drive and measurement applications and are often found in industries such as pulp and paper, forest and wood processing, agriculture, aggregate and mining equipment.
