Encoder Products Company releases new programmable encoder

The Model 25SP Programmable Size 25 Accu-CoderPro™ shaft encoder is specifically designed for the challenges of an industrial environment. Built to the same industrial standards and size as the 725 platform, the Model 25SP is programmable for resolution, waveform and signal output and with an advanced set of electronics contained within the rugged, industrial housing, making this model perfect for a variety of applications. As well, the Model 25SP Accu-CoderPro™ comes standard with dual bearings rated 80lbs axial or radial, and may be specified with up to IP67 sealing.

This all-new design is programmable up to 65536 pulses per revolution, and available in IP67 and -40 deg C to 100 deg C versions, this model also uses EPC’s optional programming module, allowing users to select the output type, more than 30 different waveforms and any resolution from 1 to 65,536 CPR.

These programming features allow a single encoder to be configured for multiple applications, enabling one encoder to replace many different part numbers, providing cost savings on inventory and downtime replacement.

YORK, Pa., Oct. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Red Lion Controls, the global experts in communication, monitoring and control for industrial automation and networking, today announced its rugged Graphite® platform has been expanded to include a new Graphite Core Controller and Graphite Crimson® Control Module that combine communication and control capabilities to reduce cost and ease operations. Both hardware offerings leverage an enhanced version of Red Lion’s powerful Crimson 3.0 software with added Crimson Control functionality to provide a single programming solution for control, networking and data visualization.

Crimson Control enables customers to use IEC 61131 programming languages – such as Ladder Logic, Function Block, Structured Text and Instruction List – to solve specific application needs by developing logic control much like a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) or Remote Telemetry Unit (RTU) without the added expense. This control functionality is now available as part of:

  • Graphite Core Controller: rugged standalone industrial controller that features all-metal construction and works with a variety of I/O modules to combine IEC 61131 control capabilities with networking and data visualization alongside the core functionality – protocol conversion, data logging and web serving – of a Graphite seven inch HMI minus the graphical display.
  • Graphite Crimson Control Module: control module that plugs into Graphite HMIs to form an all-in-one industrial solution that adds IEC 61131 control functionality without requiring additional panel space or a separate programming package.

Red Lion Controls’ Graphite(R) HMI with Graphite Crimson(R) Control Module.

“Adding control and expansion options to our Graphite platform enables organizations to take communication and control capabilities even further to enhance factory automation and process control applications,” said Paul Bunnell, director of product management at Red Lion Controls. “Customers can easily reduce equipment cost and complexity by using our new IEC 61131 control functionality to program logic control code without the need for additional software or hardware.”

To support this extended functionality, Red Lion now offers rugged Graphite expansion racks that work with the Graphite platform to provide a scalable solution enabling organizations to remotely mount up to twelve plug-in modules to the back of a cabinet without extensive wiring. Each rack supports up to three plug-in modules and can be installed for a maximum of twenty modules per tethered Graphite connection.

Red Lion’s Graphite platform includes a built-in web server that enables users to monitor and control applications via PCs, tablets or smartphones. SMS text-messaging and email alerts provide early warning of process issues, which helps avoid costly downtime or site visits. In addition, protocol conversion lets customers select from more than 300 industrial protocols to seamlessly integrate disparate devices such as PLCs, drives, cameras, barcode readers and panel meters.

The Graphite platform is ideal for factory automation and process control environments that may include manufacturing, oil & gas, water/wastewater, power, utility  transportation and maritime. Applications include tank batteries, pipelines, salt water disposal, pump stations, lift stations, substation controls, solar array positioning and railroad trackside controls.
