This module is an interface for any incremental encoder with standard connections.
A counter with a quadrature decoder as well as a latch for the zero impulse can be read or enabled by the controller. The module's control can set the counter. As an alternative this can also be done using input “C” or “Latch.”
The rate (increments/ms) is automatically acquired and can also be transmitted to the controller as an alternative to the latch value.
A counter lock-out is possible using the “Gate” input. Input “Ref“ can be used to activate the initial point “C“ function.
The cam outputs N1 and N2 indicate whether the counter value is within a defined range of values. The range can be adjusted.
Both the module and the 24 V encoder require a 24 VDC power supply.
The shield directly connects to the DIN-rail.
The device is ideal for operation in extreme environments thanks to:
- An extended temperature range
- Greater immunity to impulse voltages and electromagnetic interference
- Higher vibration and shock resistance
