PLC Tools SIM-E5V Encoder Simulator TTL User Manual

The Encoder Simulator was developed to assist integrators in application development and troubleshooting for projectswith High Speed Counters and Flow Meters. It generates high accuracy square wave signals similar to the incremental encoders and flow meters.

Encoder simulator uses an advanced microcontroller that allows to simulate encoder frequencies up to 10KHz in both directions.

Frequency selection performed using FREQUENCY pushbutton.

Output frequencies are 10Hz, 100Hz, 1KHz and 10KHz. Frequency selection is available in any output mode and while output is OFF.

Output Mode selected by the DIRECTION pushbutton.
- OFF (steady LED),
- CW (LED blinking once)
- CCW (LED blinking twice)

All signals are referenced to the Com terminal and the Common of the power supply.
