Press Release Summary:
Model HMT25 includes electronic reset, which can use system software for initialization. Sending timed pulse through reset pin, encoder value gets set to zero through non-volatile internal memory. Since encoder uses geared multi-turn code wheel system instead of battery-dependant electronic turns counter, physical position at any time is precisely determined, even in prolonged power down situations.
Original Press Release:
Multi-Turn Encoder Features Electronic Reset
Goleta, CA. -- BEI introduces a multi-turn absolute encoder, the HMT25, with electronic reset capability. Unlike manual resets (buttons or switches) an electronic reset can use system software for initialization. This greatly improves machine set-up time, especially in systems with space constraints. Sending a timed pulse through the reset pin, the encoder value gets set to "zero" through a non-volatile internal memory. Since the encoder uses a geared multi-turn code wheel system, instead of a battery-dependant electronic turns counter, the physical position at any time is precisely determined even in prolonged power down situations.
