Kubler optical fibre modules solve transmission problems simply, reliably and yet at the same time economically. They reliably convert electrical signals into optical signals - and back again. This technology finds its use wherever electrical signals do not suffice to guarantee a safe transmission of the signals. Or where interference, too large distances or shielding prevent good communication. Even when subjected to extremely strong electro-magnetic fields, Kubler optical fibre modules can transmit signals over distances of up to 2000 metres. With perfect safety.

Kubler LWL Fiber Optic Modules for Incremental Encoders Distributors

LWL Incremental

The solution where signal transmission is difficult.

The system is made up of an optical fibre transmitter and an optical fibre receiver. The optical fibre transmitter converts the electrical signals of a normal incremental encoder into a light signal for transmission by means of an optical fibre.

The receiving module converts the optical signal back into electrical signals. Up to 4 channels with inverted signals may be transmitted safely.

Even when expertly installed, electrical cables are often just not sufficient to ensure secure signal transmission. There can be problems with shielding and the separate running of power lines. Glass fibre cables offer a simpler, more reliable and more competitively priced solution.

For applications involving incremental encoders, where the user is confronted with difficulties of communication - either due to a lot of noise interference or because of long distances - Kubler offers a simple option for retrofitting existing standard encoder solutions, without the need to change over to expensive optical fibre encoders. The appropriate optical fibre module (LWL) is installed after the encoder and before the controller; the first module converts the electrical signals into reliable optical (light) signals and the second receiver module then converts these back to electrical signals when they reach their destination. An optical fibre cable is then run between the two modules, or an already existing optical fibre cable be used if preferred.

Only a single glass fibre is required, to transmit up to 4 channels. This permits safe, interference-free signal transmission, even in the presence of very strong magnetic fields, for distances up to 1000 metres and with an input frequency of up to 400 kHz. Input levels of 10-30V or RS422 are available, allowing the modules to be connected to all standard commercially-available encoders. The system does not take up much space thanks to the very compact 22mm wide DIN rail housing.

The glass fibre cables are available ready assembled as accessories within the product range. The cables just have to be inserted into the modules - as simple as that! The application areas for optical fibre modules are wide-ranging, especially in process control engineering and in automation, but also where reliable electrical isolation is required. Optical fibre modules also offer an interesting alternative solution in areas subject to explosion hazards or where high-voltage equipment is present.

Accu-Coder Encoders

The New & Innovative Design requires no calibration, gapping or special tools for hassle-free installation. The Model 121 incorporates the latest Optical ASIC technology for enhanced performance. Common problems with other modular encoder designs are warping and deflection, caused by their extensive use of plastic, both of which are virtually eliminated by the Model 121's all metal construction. For brushless servo motor applications, the Model 121
