The Jokab Pluto Safe Encoder is now distributed and installed by Products for Industry .
In conjunction with a Pluto safety PLC, the rotational Pluto Safe Encoder can be used for safe position determination. This is particularly useful in the case of such equipment as gantry robots, industrial robots, etc. Also, in eccentric shaft presses, existing cam mechanisms can be replaced by absolute value position sensors for safe positioning. The sensors are available in single and multi-turn versions.
Up to 16 Pluto Safe Encoders can be connected to a Pluto CAN databus. A Pluto on the databus reads, and subsequently evaluates the sensor values.
The absolute value sensors are standard sensors with modified software to meet safety requirements.
