NX-EC0[][][]

NX-series Incremental Encoder Input Unit

NX-EC0[][][]

Read position information from incremental encoders, synchronised with the control cycle and EtherCAT Distributed Clock.

Open collector output type and line driver output type Incremental Encoders can be connected.

High-speed remote I/O control with communications cycle as fast as 125 μs.*1

Free-Run refreshing or Synchronous I/O refreshing, Task Period Prioritized refreshing*2, can be selected for refreshing with the NX-series NX1P2 CPU Unit or EtherCAT Coupler.

When the MC Function Modules of the NJ/NX/NY5-series Machine Automation Controller are used, the encoder input can be used for motion control instructions as an “axis”.

Latch function (1 internal signal and 2 input signals from external devices)

Pulse Period Measurement

32 bit counters (80000000 to 7FFFFFFF HEX)

Maximum counting rate: 4 MHz (Line receiver: 4 MHz, Open collector: 500 kHz)

Input edge time stamps

The maximum and minimum counter values can be set.

Connection to the CJ-series is possible by connecting with the EtherNet/IPTM Coupler.

*1. When using the NX-EC01[][] together with the NX701-[][][][] and NX-ECC203.
*2. Task Period Prioritized refreshing is available when the NX-ECC203 is used together.
