Press Release Summary:
By changing 1 Vpp encoder signals to EnDat 2.2 bidirectional digital interface, EIB 192 External Interface Box converts its signal from analog to digital. Product enables incremental encoders with 1 Vpp signals to be used as part of absolute system. Interpolation and digitizing electronics are 16,384-fold, and input frequency is less than or equal to 400 kHz. Product benefits machine builders wanting to standardize on one encoder interface.
Original Press Release:
HEIDENHAIN's Revolutionary New Interface Box Changes Encoder Signals from Analog to Digital
SCHAUMBURG, IL - (May 2006) - Introducing the EIB 192 External Interface Box, HEIDENHAIN Corporation breaks new ground in the area of motion control's encoder signal transmission. By changing 1 Vpp encoder signals to an EnDat 2.2 bidirectional digital interface, the EIB box changes its signal from analog to digital, a huge advantage to machine builders wanting to standardize on one encoder interface.
To do this, HEIDENHAIN's new EIB interface box will convert sine / cosine signals to EnDat 2.2 (an innovative digital bi-directional interface for encoders that also updates information stored on an encoder). With this box, incremental encoders with 1Vpp signals can now simply be used as part of an absolute system. This is especially useful for all motion control applications that want to utilize both incremental and absolute measuring systems in their machinery.
This interpolation and digitizing electronics on this new EIB interface platform is significant boasting 16,384-fold. The input frequency is less than or equal to 400 kHz.
