The IB ST 24 INC/2 positioning module enables two incremental encoders to be connected using D-SUB connectors.
The module has 2 channels which can be operated independently of one another. Each channel consists of 4 digital inputs with 24 V DC and 4 digital outputs with 24 V DC, 500 mA.
For each of the three operating modes, counting, position detecting and positioning of objects, the inputs/outputs have a different meaning.
In this operating mode, the module is able to count pulses gate-controlled and independent of the direction (up or down). The possibility of assigning a time basis (timer) to the count permits speeds to be measured simply with incremental encoders. According to the event, one output per channel can be addressed.
If the measured value is in the defined range, the corresponding output is set by the module. In position detection, ranges within which outputs are set are defined by set values. Four outputs are available per channel.
In this application, the desired position of the object is defined via the control program. If the application allows it, position values can also be saved individually (254 per channel), which the module accesses independently after a request.
Control data, such as traversing direction and traversing rate are defined directly by the digital outputs.
Limit and reference mark switches are connected directly to the digital inputs.
The module is available with either screw or spring-cage connection.
