WAGO Intros Incremental Encoder
Incremental encoder.
Germantown, WI — WAGO Corporation has added an HTL Incremental Encoder/Counter Module to its SPEEDWAY IP67 I/O-System. The machine-mountable 767-5202 evaluates incremental encoders and SSI absolute encoders at 24V signal levels in harsh environments. It also provides a counting function for binary signals up to 250kHZ. This makes it suitable for counting motor revolutions in applications such as topdrives, line shafts or motion-intensive machinery found in food processing and packaging.

The unit provides two 8-pole M12 encoder ports. Channel configuration options include: type of evaluation and sensor, output format, filters, inversion, latch, gate, preset, cam, simulation and limits. 767-5202 also has two 5-pole M12 ports with four configurable digital inputs/outputs for sensors and actuators. Two of these channels can serve as pulse-width-modulated outputs, with the 100 Hz-10kHz clock frequency having a pulse-width repetition rate of 0-100 percent. Users may set previously defined outputs directly as a function of counter readings.

The 767-5202 is configurable using fieldbus-independent FDT/DTM, or fieldbus-dependent device descriptions (e.g., GSD or GSDML). It is programmable using a USB interface integrated into the fieldbus coupler, or directly through fieldbus (not applicable to Ethernet-based couplers).

The machine-mountable system processes 1000 instructions within 150 microseconds. It incorporates IP67 fieldbus-independent Ethernet controllers (IEC 61131-3 programmable) and couplers, as well as DI, DO and DIO modules. The system accommodates up to 64 modules per node with a 1,650 foot node extension.
