The EL5101-0010 EtherCAT Terminal is an interface for the direct connection of incremental encoders with differential signals (RS422). With a maximum input frequency of up to 5 MHz it is particularly suitable for dynamic applications. Two additional 24 V digital inputs are available for storing, blocking and setting the counter status. The error message output of an encoder can be connected and evaluated via the status input. The 5 V and 24 V supply of the encoder can be provided directly via the terminal connection points.

 

Special features:

  • save, lock, set counter
  • integrated frequency and period measurement
  • open-circuit recognition
  • synchronous reading of the position value via distributed clocks
  • Timestamp on the last-registered incremental edge

 

In addition, the EL5101-0010 enables the measurement of a period or frequency with a resolution of 100 ns. It also supports synchronous reading of the encoder value together with other input data in the EtherCAT system via the high-precision EtherCAT distributed clocks (DC). A timestamp for the last-registered incremental edge is also available. The use of encoder profiles enables simple and fast linking of the process data for Motion Control applications.
