Incremental Encoder Controller
The MR30X series fiber optic position sensor system is an innovative all-optical design immune to any electro-magnetic interferences such as magnetic fields, lightning, voltage, and other harsh environment conditions. The MR302-1 Controller works with any of the MR30X series fiber optic incremental encoders – rotary or linear.
The Sensor is connected to the Controller via an industry-standard 62.5/125μm duplex multimode fiber optic link. As the incremental code media passes through the Sensor’s internal optical pick-up, the phase output of two light beams create the classical A/B quadrature signals accessible via the controller’s electrical interface.
The controller keeps track of position and also calculates the RPM or linear speed of the connected encoder. Both position and speed can be read via Modbus/RS485 serial interface, USB or analog output. The analog output can be configured for either ± 10V or 4-20mA output.
The system has built-in diagnostics and can signal to the user any anomaly occurring during operation.
|Electrical Interface||NOTE: Electrical connections shall not exceed 3 meters|
Electrical connections via Terminal Plug, Phoenix 1803659 (one supplied with Controller)
USB via Type B receptacle, Modbus via IEEE 1394 receptacle
|Quadrature Outputs||A+/A-/B+/B- line driver outputs are user configurable: 5V, 12V, 24V; 100 kHz maximum bandwidth|
|Discrete Digital Signal||HOMING Input (24V)|
|Digital Interfaces||USB and Modbus/RS485|
User selectable: ±10V or 4-20mA, Position or Speed Mode
Current Range=0-20mA, Max burden resistance=500Ω (24V supply), Accuracy=0.25% F.S.
Voltage Range=±10V, Max current=5mA (2kΩ load), Short circuit<5s, Accuracy=0.25% F.S.
Position Mode: Full scale range is 1 to 8,388,607 counts (equivalent to >8,192 revolutions of a 1024ppr encoder) based on contents of internal counter. Either Homing Input (+24V) or software command may be used as a Homing command to set absolute position.
Speed Mode: Full scale range can be programmed from 10 to 10,000 RPM
+24 VDC, 50mA (typical); Operates over 18V to 28V
During power-up, external power supply should be capable of 100mA in-rush current
