Discontinuation announcement for absolute encoders with DRIVE-CLiQ and RJ45 connectors
We hereby announce the discontinuation of the absolute encoders with an RJ45 connection as of October 1, 2017.
The successor products are mechanically compatible, but have an M12 connecting flange socket instead of the RJ45 connector. As the SMI of the predecessor products has been replaced by an integrated DRIVE-CLiQ ASIC, replacing an RJ45 encoder with an M12 encoder involves recommissioning the corresponding axis of the encoder.
The predecessor devices will be discontinued as of October 1, 2017, but will continue to be available as spare parts.
