Digital outputs

The sine wave signal from the optical system is first digitised to have square wave signals available.

  • Shaft turning clockwise, top view of shaft
  • Inverted signals are available
  • 0 pulse is linked to AND with channel A and B
To transmit the signals there are two possible outputs available. RS422 (TTL compatible) or push-pull. When choosing the suitable output for the application the following points have to be considered:
  • The corresponding unit / controller the encoder will be connected to
  • The required cable length
  • Dihe sensitivity against electrical noise or other interference
