SMC40 – Sensor Module Cabinet-Mounted from Siemens

Connection of purely serial encoders with EnDat22 interface to DRIVE-CLiQ

Encoder requirements

The sensor module cabinet-mounted SMC40 make it possible to connect encoders with the ordering designation EnDat22 to the DRIVE-CLiQ interface. The following encoder series are supported:

  • Absolute linear encoders, such as: – LMBA – Linear Measuring Scale with LMKA – Encoder Head
  • Absolute angle encoders, such as: – WMFA / WMRA – Measuring Flange with Ring Scale or Ring Scale with WMKA – Encoder Head

After switch-on, the SMC tests various characteristics of the connected encoder and automatically adapts itself to it. If the encoder does not fulfill the specific requirements, an error message is transmitted over the DRIVE-CLiQ interface.
