The SNAP-IDC5Q quadrature input module is designed to allow a SNAP brain to resolve two axes of rotating position information from quadrature encoder devices. The module outputs a pulse to the brain upon each change in quadrature state. The brain counts the module output pulses and keeps track of the direction and position.
The SNAP-IDC5Q is used with SNAP-PAC-EB1 brains and SNAP-PAC-R1 controllers. The module is also fully compatible with legacy SNAP-B3000-ENET and SNAP-UP1-ADS brains, as well as B3000 and B3000-HA brains using the mistic protocol.
The SNAP-IDC5Q can be used with most quadrature devices, including transducers with TTL, CMOS, and open collector outputs. All inputs are isolated from each other and do not share any common connections.
Part of the SNAP PAC System, the module mounts on a SNAP PAC rack
with a SNAP PAC brain
or rack-mounted controller
. Analog, digital, and serial I/O modules can all be on the same rack. Such an I/O unit is also well suited for PC-based control or for use as intelligent remote I/O for an Allen-Bradley Logix PLC system
, such as ControlLogix, MicroLogix, or CompactLogix.
