Programmable position indicator with serial output


Programmable position indicators with hollow shaft and serial connection, which is used for linear or angular measurements. It is easy to install for a fast, efficient and safe format changeover.
The EP43 / EP46 are an evolution of mechanical indicators, with compatible dimensions and the same mounting system, for semi-automatic adjustment monitored by PLC on a vast range of machines and plants even in complex andheterogenous working conditions.

Main features:
Compact and robust case made of anodized aluminum, stainless steel hollow shaft supported by ball-bearings.
The display has 7,5mm-high-digits, which allow excellent readability also from a distance. 
2 models:  EP43RS with ø14 - ø12,7 (1/2”) hollow shaft; EP46RS with ø20 - ø19,05 (3/4”) - ø25hollow shaft.
3 installation possibilities: version A for horizontal shafts with optimal visibility when positioned at a height between 50cm and 120cm; version B1 for vertical shafts with optimal visibility between 50cm and 150cm; version B2 for vertical shafts with optimal visibility above 170cm

Main functions:
■ Display LCD with backlight and two rows: the first row shows the current position and the second row shows the target position. The target value is sent to the unit via a serial interface from the PLC, allowing manual format changeover by the operator using a handwheel.
■  2 LEDs, 1 green and 1 red, guide the operator until the correct position has been reached
■ All parameters are freely programmable via the integrated RS485 interface for networking with the PLC or a remote supervision system. It is possible to use a converter in case a Profinet, EtherNet/IP, or Profibus communication are required.
 Available attachments: shaft block flange (see drop-down menu on the right).
