TIM-EC interface module with EtherCAT enables torque measurement across independent field bus networks
HBM has developed the TIM-EC interface module with EtherCAT for the digital transfer of torque and speed signals by enabling precise real time communication with high performance and bandwidth. The module is highly suitable for dynamic measurements as it gives fast jitter-free data transmission with low delay times. Torque, speed, angle and output can be precisely acquired and digitally integrated into control and automation systems without any losses in real time.
The latest TIM-EC features integrated coupler functionality or TIM-to-TIM communication that facilitates the integration of the torque transducer into independent Industrial Ethernet networks so that measured values can be independently adapted to the respective measurement task.
Torque transducers can be operated simultaneously on different networks while real time communication within the networks is guaranteed. The TIM-EC module can be used in field bus-based automation and control systems – for instance, in test benches for electric motors, combustion engines, gears, pumps and compressors.
