Impulse Splitter and Converter for Incremental Encoders
Lika Electronic USA Posted 03/01/2019
IF09 is an impulse splitter and converter designed to divide the input signals from a single incremental encoder into two independently programmable outputs.
It's possible to connect either a TTL / RS-422 encoder (+5Vdc) or an HTL encoder (+10 … 30Vdc). The unit accepts single-ended signals or differential signals in any industrial impulse format and level: single-ended HTL, RS-422, TTL-differential, HTL-differential.
The two outputs can be programmed individually and will always provide all AB0 /AB0 signals, even when the inverted signals are not available at the input. The output signal level can be selected to +5V or to +10 ... +30 using the integrated DIP switch. So for example,we can connect a single-ended HTL encoder with +10 … +30Vdc power supply and set the first output, OUT1, to AB0 HTL and +10 … +30V level and the second output, OUT2, to AB0 /AB0 TTL-differential and +5V level. In this case, the device operates as a splitter and as a converter at the same time.
The max. input frequency can be 750 kHz for TTL signals and 350 kHz for HTL signals. IF09 also provides an auxiliary voltage output +5Vdc to supply the encoder. The enclosure has a very small footprint and offers 35 mm top hat DIN rail mounting according to EN 60715.
