Anti-Dither Module Prevents System Resets
Goleta, CA -- Controller seeing too many counts? Losing position in your control system? High vibration environment causing false counts? BEI's DIN rail mountable electronic module can help. By comparing the quadrature outputs on your encoder, the Anti-Dither Module can remove the unwanted part of the signal and give you a true picture of your system output. Web processes, conveyors, in-line inspection stations, and heavy equipment operations are all subject to possible system errors caused by mechanical vibration. This causes jitter on the encoder signal and subsequent position and speed errors in the control electronics. BEI's Anti-Dither Module, placed between the encoder and the receiving electronics, removes this type of error making sure the real data signal ends up at the controller.
