NX-series Incremental Encoder Input Unit


More precise timing control by synchronizing the position data with the 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, synchronous I/O refreshing, or task period prioritized refreshing*2 with the NX1P2 CPU Unit or EtherCAT Coupler Unit

• The MC Function Modules of the NJ/NX/NY5 Controllers allows the encoder to be used as a motion axis

• Latching (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)

• Time Stamping

• Maximum and minimum counter value setting

• Connect to the CJ PLC using the EtherNet/IPTM bus 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.
