IGI16 Encoder Interface
Module for incremental encoders with 16 inputs. Capturing positioning data according to CiA specification for CAN networks.
The compact aluminum housing contains a top hat rail mount and a front cover with all interfaces for better overview in the control cabinet. The technician will note the convenience while working at the bus cabling.
Overall, the IGI has 16 incremental encoder interfaces. 5 of them are directly connected to counters. The sixth can be switched to D3 to D13. Inc A and B possess a resolution of 32 Bit. All others work with a standard 16 Bit resolution. Each encoder uses an impulse quadruplication for 20,000 impulses at 5,000 steps per turn.
LEDs and switches
All inputs can be monitored with the help of LEDs at the clamps. In addition to that, you can configure the baud rate with a HEX-switch at the front cover - easy and comfortable.
Besides its inputs the IGI16 offers a powerful micro-controller that handles the data acquisition of sensors and the processing of any CAN-data.
The integrated CAN interface is designed in accordance to DS 301 and 401 for a flexible use in different places and tasks in the CAN bus network. All Sontheim CAN interfaces comply to ISO 11898.
