PROFINET always up to date

TR-Electronic revises sensors for industrial standards TR-Electronic, a well-known manufacturer of absolute multiturn encoders, has been supporting PROFINET since the very beginning at the turn of the millennium. In the approx. 20 years in which the automation world has been inspired by PROFINET, the bus standard has changed several times and has been further developed […]


International explosion protection

For many years, TR-Electronic has been converting the experience it has gathered in digital angle and displacement measurement into products that are in line with the market. TR has the necessary skills to recognize the requirements of customers and markets and to convert them into suitable operating resources. Especially when the ambient conditions become adverse […]


Absolute position measurement with free choice of interface

Modular linear-absolute position measuring system LMRS27 from TR-Electronic Contactless, wear-free measuring systems based on magnetostriction are often used for the absolute position measurement of linear movements. Tight, pressure-resistant sensor tubes allow installation in hydraulic cylinders and thus a reliable option for recording the extension length. Cylinders equipped in this way are used, for example, in […]


Small component, big solution

adapter plugs ensure compatibility The customers of TR-Electronic know exactly – the solutions they choose are durable. This applies both to the use of the extremely robust sensors in industry and to the possibility of obtaining functionally compatible replacement solutions even after years. Sometimes it only takes a little bit to use the latest generation […]


Compact industrial standard with the newest encoder profile V4.2: PROFINET encoder made by TR Electronic

Second generation PROFINET encoders made by TR Electronic support the most recent encoder profile V4.2 issued by PI. In addition to RT applications, our encoders also support IRT (for isochronous real time) including an Isochronous Mode Application. A suitable configuration of the network´s topology (e.g. in TIA Portal) guarantees easy commissioning and replacement of the […]


Single cable solution gets full certification

Absolute rotary encoders with EtherCAT-P In time for the spring of automation, the ETG (EtherCAT Technology Group) confirms that the absolute rotary encoders of the latest generation from TR-Electronic with EtherCAT-P meet all the required standards. This means that the innovative single-cable solution is also officially available for rotary encoders, which are available in the […]


Analog with remote teach-in

Absolute rotary encoder with analog interface TR-Electronic offers a multifunctional analog interface in the latest encoder series. The 16-bit D / A converter processes the multiturn position signal and thus supplies an output signal proportional to the angle of rotation. The speed signal can also be used, with which a speed feedback can be implemented […]


Ship ahoy! Linear encoder certified for maritime applications

Triple redundant linear encoder LMR70-A now approved for offshore applications. The double or triple redundant absolute linear encoders LMR70 from TR have been reliably performing their service in particularly difficult environments for many years. Up to 3 sensor elements work simultaneously in this measuring system. Each has its own connection with supply voltage and signal […]


Rotary encoder with large pinion

The question arises again and again: “How do I get the movement into the encoder?” For rotary encoders that monitor pitch adjustment in wind turbines, pinions that engage directly in the pitch adjustment gear rim have proven the preferred solution. This monitors the movement “at the end” of the drive train and thus records the […]


Pioneering Spirit

TR safety encoders help lifting complete drilling platforms. With a length of 382 meters and a width of 124 meters, the Allseas Pioneering Spirit is the largest work ship in the world. The Pioneering Spirit was specially developed to lift large offshore platforms of up to 48,000 tons out of their anchoring (“jacket”) and to […]
