Cannon Automata SSI Gateway is the standard interface for absolute encoders, a simple and inexpensive device that allows the connection of SSI encoders from any vendor to a Sercos III network.

SSI-Gateway supports up to four Sercos real-time data connections. This makes it possible to transmit the position values captured by the encoder not only direct to the control but also to other slaves – an important feature for applications with master and slave axes, electronic cam switches or electronic gears. In addition to the position value, the device can also capture and transmit velocity and acceleration values.
