IF52 is the latest innovation in the series born to solve your signal conversion and modernization needs. It is compact and low-cost and is designed to convert SSI encoder data to either parallel output or serial RS-232 data format; yet it can accept also serial data from a RS-232 source and convert it to parallel output. It can be connected to all single-turn and multi-turn encoders and sensors fitted with 6- to 25-bit resolution standard SSI interface and either Binary or Gray code. The unit will then deliver data in parallel format and Binary, Gray or BCD code through the 25-bit interface with Push-Pull characteristics. Parallel outputs are protected against short circuit provided a 27 volts max voltage is applied. Basic configuration can be performed via DIL switches directly on the unit, while the full capabilities of the more advanced configuration are available via serial interface using the software tool supplied for free. In this way data source (SSI or RS-232 serial data) can be selected along with the parallel output characteristics (Binary, Gray or BCD code). Furthermore extended setting options enable to set up the baud rate (clock frequency between 100 Hz and 1 MHz) and the telegram interval time of the SSI interface to meet any cable run needs. Please note the IF52 unit is designed to operate in either Master mode (i.e. the clock signal is generated by the unit) or in Slave mode (i.e. the clock signal is generated by the remote Master device).
As stated, IF52 converter is also equipped with a serial RS-232 interface (9-pin Sub-D connector) that allows both to convert SSI data to serial format and to interface the unit for powerful parametrization. Also RS-232 port baud rate and format are freely selectable.
IF52 converter provides you with several advantages, among the others: the conversion of the position information into any engineering unit such as millimetres or inches; the ROUND LOOP function to replace the real encoder position with a repeating cycle count; the BIT BLANKING function for a tailored evaluation of the encoder information; the programmable LINEARISATION feature which allows the user both to correct precision errors of the sensor and to convert a linear motion to a non-linear data output (and vice versa); the HOLD input to “freeze” the parallel information; the DATA STABLE output for remote latch of the parallel data.
IF52 converter comes in a compact and sturdy plastic housing with DIN rail mounting and can quickly snap onto a DIN rail with built-in DIN rail clips that require no additional brackets or supports. Electrical connection is through 12 screw terminals; unit accepts inputs from 5 to 27 volts. Power supply is 18-30 VDC.
