Wago Introduces Speedway IP67 Incremental Encoder

Wago Corp. adds an HTL Incremental Encoder/Counter Module to its Speedway IP67 I/O-System.

The machine-mountable 767-5202 evaluates incremental encoders and SSI absolute encoders at 24 V signal levels in harsh environments. It also provides a counting function for binary signals up to 250 kHZ. This makes it ideal for counting motor revolutions in applications such as topdrives, line shafts or motion-intensive machinery found in food processing and packaging.

The Speedway 767-5202 provides two 8-pole M12 encoder ports. Channel configuration options include: type of evaluation and sensor, output format, filters, inversion, latch, gate, preset, cam, simulation and limits. 767-5202 also has two 5-pole M12 ports with four configurable digital inputs/outputs for sensors and actuators. Two of these channels can serve as pulse-width-modulated outputs, with the 100 Hz–10 kHz clock frequency having a pulse-width repetition rate of 0–100 percent. Users may set previously defined outputs directly as a function of counter readings.

The 767-5202 is configurable via fieldbus-independent FDT/DTM, or via fieldbus-dependent device descriptions (e.g., GSD or GSDML). It is programmable via USB interface integrated into the fieldbus coupler, or directly via fieldbus (not applicable to Ethernet-based couplers).
