SSI Encoder Interface

Designed to interface to 25Bit SSI encoders this unit produces a 4 to 20mA signal to allow remote monitoring of feedback position. 

  • Scaling and offset adjustment is provided via digital parameters.
  • An LCD display indicates Measured Position and allows simple parameter adjustment.
  • Two relays outputs are available to indicate Presettable positions.
  • Supply 20-30V DC reverse polarity protected.
