Acquisition of position encoders


Exact axis positioning is very important for the regulation of surface measurement devices for rotationally symmetric parts, for example gear wheels


The measurement device consists of a measurement table with a gate. The rotationally symmetric parts are fixed on the measurement table and their surface is tested with a sensor connected to the gate. There is a fast signal transfer. Positions need to be detected with high precision.


The PCI-Express counter board APCIe-1711 is used for exact axis control. The axes are equipped with EnDat 2.2 absolute encoders – no reference runs. Time is saved.
