The Dual Encoder to USB Converter module from BEI Industrial Encoders, Goleta, CA, translates encoder position data to USB 2.0 format that can be accessed through a PC. Each module can handle signals from two SSI absolute encoders or two quadrature incremental encoders. An optional programmable data sample function lets you automatically capture readings on a precise time clock. The module can be programmed through the USB port for number of bits (absolute encoders) or count mode, reset, preset, preset/resent on index, and counter register length (incremental encoders). Applications include system setup and debugging, DA, analysis, monitoring, and PC-based control.
