The PISO-ENCODER600U contains a 6-axis encoder counter and each axis has a 32-bit, true counter with a maximum counting rate of 1 MHz. The counting mode can be selected from three types: 1. Quadrant mode, 2. CW/CCW mode, and 3. PULSE/DIR mode. There are also three 3 kinds of counter reset modes provided: 1. Register Reset, 2. Index Reset, and 3. Hardware Reset. The "Index Reset" mode resets by using a C+/C- channel, which will reset the counter on each revolution. The "Hardware Reset" mode resets the counter using an external pin (HR1 ~ HR6). The HR1 ~ HR6 pins can also be used as digital input.
The PISO-ENCODER600U also provides 8-ch digital outputs. 2500 Vrms photo-couplers are used to isolate the digital I/O to prevent high voltages from affecting the system. Device drivers and function libraries for DOS, Windows 7 and Windows XP/2000 are provided.
