Connection of two 24 V HTL incremental encoders

The EL5162 EtherCAT Terminal is an interface for the connection of two 24 V incremental encoders (24 V HTL) with A-, B- and C-track. Input frequencies up to 100 kHz can be evaluated. Two additional 24 V digital inputs per channel are available for saving, locking and setting the counter value. Furthermore, there is an option to set the counter value to a specified value or to lock the counter directly via the process data. Alternatively, the EL5162 can be used as an up/down counter. The encoder can be supplied with 24 V directly via the connection points of the terminal.

 

Special features:

  • Save, lock and set the counter
  • Integrated frequency and period measurement
  • Optionally usable as a 24 V up/down counter
  • Micro-increments
  • Synchronous reading of the position value via Distributed Clocks
  • Timestamp on the last registered incremental edge and the latch value via the 24 V digital inputs

 

In addition, the EL5162 enables the measurement of a period, frequency or velocity with a resolution of 10 ns. A duty cycle measurement of the incoming signal is implemented.

 

Due to the optional interpolating micro-incremental functionality, the EL5162 can supply even more precise axis positions for dynamic axes. In addition to that it supports the synchronous reading of the encoder value together with other input data in the EtherCAT system via high-precision EtherCAT Distributed Clocks (DC). In addition, a timestamp is available for the last registered incremental edge. The use of encoder profiles allows the simple and fast linking of the process data to the Motion Control application.
