Handling signals from 2 SSI absolute encoders or 2 quadrature incremental encoders, BEI Industrial Encoders’ new Dual Encoder to USB Converter translates encoder position data to USB 2.0 format that can be accessed directly through a PC. The PC interface enables the module to be programmed through the USB port for number of bits with absolute encoders. For incremental encoders, count mode (X1, X2, X4), reset, preset, and preset/reset on index are programmable through the USB, and incremental encoder counter register length is programmable up to 32 bits. The device suits system setup and debugging, data acquisition, analysis, monitoring, and PC-based control applications. An optional programmable data sample function allows users to automatically capture readings on a time clock.
