SICK PGT-12-Pro programming tool

Tuesday, 23 May, 2017 | Supplied by: SICK Pty Ltd


The SICK PGT-12-Pro programming tool is a portable programming tool for sensors with a CANopen interface and is  designed for configuring and connecting programmable AHS/AHM36 absolute encoders and inclination sensors in the TMS/TMM61 and TMS/TMM88 product lines with a CANopen interface or an analog output.

New sensor variants with CANopen and new functions for the programming tool can be installed easily via a firmware update. Storing configurations to the device’s SD card is just as easy. When replacing a device, they can be transferred quickly and also cloned for any number of identical applications and configurations. When used as a basis for wire draw encoders and inclination sensors, the CANopen combination of the PGT-12-Pro and the specified absolute encoders is suitable for the areas of commercial vehicles, agricultural and forestry machines, and industrial, municipal and special vehicles.

One of the product families that benefits from the tool is the AHS/AHM36 line of programmable absolute encoders in the 36 mm compact housing. While the AHS36 singleturn version offers a practical 14-bit resolution, the AHM36 batteryless multiturn version with transmission gear provides a full 26-bit resolution.

All relevant parameters can be adjusted in the encoders using the PGT-12-Pro. The node ID — already configured upon delivery — is easy to adjust in the event of conflicting addresses. The encoder’s baud rate can be adjusted to the conditions in the fieldbus, as can the frequency and type of parameter transfer. This allows the data transmission load to be optimised and, with it, the speed of the bus. With variable process data object mapping, the objects to be transmitted can be freely assigned to the encoder using the programming tool.
