Connectric Application Tips and Advice



Need to split an absolute / SSI encoder signal?

Absolute / SSI encoders and linear positioning devices provide an absolute position which is retained if power is turned off.  If the encoder or linear positioning device is moved while power is off, the new position is indicated when power is resumed.  

Typically SSI encoder signals are difficult to split due to the master / slave control.  However one solution is to use the Motrona IX350/AO SSI display with programmable analogue output and a UZ210 analogue to SSI converter.

With the IX350/AO set in slave mode, the IX can 'tap' the SSI signal without affecting the data communication between the controller and encoder.  The scaleable analogue output of the IX350/AO can be used as an input to the UZ210 which converts from analogue to SSI signal.  Or, simply use the IX350/AO to provide an analogue output in parallel with the SSI signal.

An added significant benefit is that the IX350/AO has a scaleable display which will show the position of the encoder (not an SSI count).
