953N ReadyLinkTM EtherNet/IPTM LDT with RapidRecallTM
The ReadyLinkTM EtherNet/IPTM LDT with RapidRecallTM is our newest linear displacement transducer (LDT) being
developed with an EtherNet/IPTM network interface. The Network LDT provides maximum flexibility for installation and ease of use in
demanding, high-performance, networked industrial applications. EtherNet/IPTM is an Industrial Ethernet implementation of the Common
Industrial Protocol (CIP), managed by the Open DeviceNet Vendor Association (ODVA). EtherNet/IPTM systems require only a single point
network connection for both configuration and control, thus simplifying installation and wiring.
Our linear displacement transducer line utilizes advanced, proven Magnetostrictive technology to provide highly precise and absolute non-contact
position feedback down to 1 micron resolution. We package these sensors to survive in the most demanding and hostile environments.
The AMETEK ReadyLinkTM EtherNet/IPTM LDT with RapidRecallTM is a smart device; it has a RapidRecallTM
Configuration Module to help aid in configuration of the LDT. This module is located on the head assembly of the LDT, next to the connectors.
The RapidRecallTM module can be used to help configure the static IP address of the LDT and store all user defined configurations. In
the module there are three rotary DIP switches that allow the user to configure how the IP address is assigned as well as other functions. Once
the LDT has been configured, these settings can be uploaded to the module. One of the key benefits to uploading the configuration data to the
RapidRecallTM module is that if anything was to ever go wrong with the LDT, the RapidRecallTM module with the entire user
programmed settings can be removed from the original unit and installed on the replacement unit. With a simple setting of the DIP switches the
user configuration settings can be downloaded from the RapidRecallTM module to the new LDT.
