The resolver-to-digital converter MSX-RDC-17 is a device for supplying and acquiring a resolver. It converts the position value given by the resolver into a digital incremental output signal. The resolution of the incremental encoder output can be defined using the switch on the front side of the MSX-RDC-17.
The resolution of the incremental output is set through a switch panel on the front side of the MSX-RDC-17.
Nominal voltage: 5 V
• Frequency: 10 kHz
Incremental encoder output
• Output signals: incremental A+, A-, B+, B-, Index+, Index-
• Output type: differential, RS422
• Resolution: 10-/12-/14-/16-bit
Power supply connector
For the power supply of the MSX-RDC-17, a 4-pin screw terminal is fixed on the bottom side of the housing. The Ground and the supply pins are connected internally with each other. For less current flow over the terminals, please connect all four pins externally with each other!
On the front side of the MSX-RDC-17, a switch panel with three switches is installed. Switches 1 and 2 are used for setting the resolution of the incremental encoder output. Switch 3 allows you to reset the MSX-RDC-17. To do a reset, you have to switch on switch 3 for a short time and then switch it off again. Please do not leave switch 3 switched on permanently, because the MSX-RDC-17 is not functional with this switch position
The resolver has to be connected to the 9-pin D-Sub female connector onthe front side of the MSX-RDC-17.
Incremental encoder output
The incremental encoder signals are available at the 9-pin D-Sub male connector of the MSX-RDC-17.
Index signal (incremental encoder output)
An Index pulse is generated when the absolute angular position passes through 0.
The resolver-to-digital converter MSX-RDC-17 has to be used as electrical equipment for measurement, control and laboratory pursuant to the standard DIN EN IEC 61010-1. The power supply for the resolver-to-digital converter MSX-RDC-17 must fulfil the requirements of DIN EN IEC 62368-1 and DIN EN 55032 or IEC/CISPR 32 and DIN EN 55024 or IEC/CISPR 24.
