RESOLUTE™ FS (Functional Safety)
What is RESOLUTE FS?
RESOLUTE FS is a true absolute open optical encoder system certified to the following functional safety standards:
ISO 13849:2015 PLd
IEC 61508:2010 SIL2
IEC 61800-5-2:2016 SIL2
Certain machinery safety functions, such as Safety Limited Speed (SLS), require the encoder feedback to be functionally safe. Utilising an encoder system that is already rated for use in these applications can make machine certification significantly easier. Adopting these advanced machine safety functions allows machine builders to make safer machines, capable of higher functionality that reduce set-up times and machine downtime.
It is available with compatibility to the Siemens DRIVE-CLiQ interface, with other communications interfaces becoming available soon.
It provides the same high performance as the standard RESOLUTE encoder system with fine resolutions at high speeds, generous installation tolerances and easy application due to its open design. RESOLUTE FS can boost system performance due to its ultra-low Sub-Divisional Error (SDE) resulting in lower velocity ripple, and low noise allowing for rock solid position stability.
