Position Indicator EP43RS – EP46RS

The EP43RS / EP46RS is a programmable position indicator 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.

  • Compact and robust case made of anodized aluminum, stainless steel hollow shaft supported by ball-bearings
  • Display 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.
  • 2 models:
    – EP43RS with ø14 – ø12,7 (1/2”) hollow shaft
    – EP46RS with ø20 – ø19,05 (3/4”) – ø25hollow shaft
