WAGO Corporation (Germantown, WI) has added an HTL Incremental Encoder/Counter Module to its SPEEDWAY IP67 I/O-SYSTEM. The machine-mountable 767-5202 evaluates incremental encoders and SSI absolute encoders at 24 V signal levels in harsh environments. It also provides a counting function for binary signals up to 250 kHZ. This makes it ideal for counting motor revolutions in applications such as topdrives, line shafts or motion-intensive machinery found in food processing and packaging. The SPEEDWAY 767-5202 provides two 8-pole M12 encoder ports. Channel configuration options include: type of evaluation and sensor, output format, filters, inversion, latch, gate, preset, cam, simulation and limits. Features include:
- Two 5-pole M12 ports with four configurable digital inputs/outputs for sensors and actuators.
- 100 Hz–10 kHz clock frequency having a pulse-width repetition rate of 0–100%.
- Configurability via fieldbus-independent FDT/DTM, or via fieldbus-dependent device descriptions (e.g., GSD or GSDML).
