EtherNet/IP™ Encoders Rise to Oil & Gas Challenges
Schaumburg, IL (April 2018) – EtherNet/IP™ encoders from Leine & Linde are available for oil and gas equipment applications, as they are certified for use in ATEX/IECEx zone 1/21 — areas where a high level of protection is needed such as in atmospheres with gas and dust. These encoders will be on exhibit at the upcoming Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) held April 30 – May 3 in Houston, Texas (Booth #1705).
Useful in all hazardous or explosive environments, the Leine & Linde singleturn rotary Ex 647 encoder and the multiturn Ex 648 are both available with solid shaft or hollow-shaft mounting to fit well into the oil and gas industry applications. The reliability of Leine & Linde encoders is well established and appreciated, especially among the most physically demanding industry applications.
