ADVANTECH has introduced a high speed quadrature encoder and counter module for use with the ADAM-5550 series programmable automation controllers (PACs).
The ADAM-5081 has a high isolation of 2500V dc, a high speed frequency mode (5Hz – 1MHz), and a counter code at 1MHz.
There’s also an advanced digital filter to eliminate noise and interference (1 — 65,000µ sec) which ensures accurate data collection and transmission.
The encoder features four counter modes (up/down, bi-directional, up and A/B phase modes), which counts precise data units in minute detail.
The frequency mode supports up to eight channels and can control a wider range of electromagnetic wave status under certain conditions.
It supports four digital output channels, which can be triggered by a preset counter value, and can watch the position encoder of the machine while doing the position comparing.
Once the preset value is reached, the system requires a digital output signal to trigger the camera. With built-in DO channels already in the ADAM-5081, the respond speed is maximised.
