Receiver Module:

The receiver module is specific to the serial number of the encoder via a checksum per data transmission.  Data is never lost, as it is stored in a buffer until a valid transmission occurs.


Power supply is 12...24V

Connection: Terminal Blocks

Mounting: DIN Rail


For quadrature incremental outputs, the receiver converts the raw counts into an A and B channel count.  The output comes as burts of pulses every 16ms.


For RS232 outputs, the receivers converts the raw data to an ASCII format and the count just keeps adding up to a 32bit number, where it then rolls over.  So the RS232 can be used as an absolute encoder as well.


Each encoder has a unique identity number in case multiple sensors are purchased.  The ID numbers can be customer specified.  As default, they be the serial number of the device, this way, there will never be conflicting identities on a system.

Mounting Instructions

1. Just before installing encoder onto shaft, screw the battery pack in firmly to the transmitter housing (the clear part)

2. Mount the encoder mechanically as you would any other encoder.

3. Plug in the receiver module into the PLC or computer and start reading the data in whatever format you have.

4. The battery can be 'hot-swapped' in the field for a new battery if it does run out.

5. If you will NOT immediately use the encoder, do NOT connect the battery.  Only connect the battery right before using.
