Press Release Summary:
Dual Encoder to USB Converter module can handle signals from 2 SSI absolute encoders or 2 quadrature incremental encoders. Using PC interface, module can be programmed through USB port for number of bits with absolute encoders, and for incremental encoders count mode (X1, X2, X4), reset, preset, and preset/reset on index are also programmable. Module is suited for system setup and debugging, data acquisition, analysis, monitoring, and PC based control applications.
Original Press Release:
Dual Encoder to USB Converter Allows PC Access to Encoder Data
BEI Industrial Encoders introduces the new Dual Encoder to USB Converter module. This module translates encoder position data to industry standard USB 2.0 format that can be accessed directly through a PC. Each module can handle signals from two SSI absolute encoders or two quadrature incremental encoders. An optional programmable data sample function allows users to automatically capture readings on a precise time clock.
Using a simple PC interface, this module can be programmed through the USB port for number of bits with absolute encoders. For incremental encoders, count mode (X1, X2, X4), reset, preset, and preset/reset on index are programmable through the USB. Incremental encoder counter register length is programmable, up to 32 bits. The Dual Encoder to USB Converter is ideal for system setup and debugging, data acquisition, analysis, monitoring and PC based control applications.
