Encoder Types Supported by Elevation 24
The Elevation 24 supports a number of different types of encoders. These can be accessed via the SET <XXX> menu.
Quad – Quadrature encoder with A and B pulse lines, The direction of travel can be sensed from the encoder. The direction can be inverted from the Vector software program by setting the Encoder Direction Invert check box.
Dummy – No encoder is fitted and the Smart8 simulates an encoder pulse every 10ms. Moving for a count of 500 would move a hoist for a time of 5 seconds. This simulates a motor speed of 100mm/s.
Pulse – A pulse encoder which produces pulses to indicate movement but has no direction information. The direction of movement is inferred from the front panel manual switches in manual mode, and the requested direction of movement in Vector control mode. An example of a pulse encoder is a Skjonberg Lodestar pulse encoder.
Quad – This is essentially the same as the QUAD mode described above. A clockwise rotation of the encoder shaft will produce an increasing encoder count. This mode ignores the Encoder Direction Invert set by the Vector software.
Quad Inv – This is the same as the Quad mode described above except the direction of count is inverted. A clockwise rotation of the encoder shaft will produce a decreasing encoder count. This mode ignores the Encoder Direction Invert set by the Vector software.
