COLUMBUS, OH — Newall's new RPE-PV programmable rotary encoder features a dynamic encoder resolution capability that allows users to easily program the resolution anywhere between 1 and 10,000 counts per revolution. Packaged as an industry standard 2.5" rotary encoder housing, the RPE-PV allows for virtually unlimited resolution variations.
Users can produce a wide range of resolutions from one encoder and it can be reprogrammed as needed to change the resolution. The RPE-PV programs over its existing M18 connector. Using an M18-to-USB programming cable, simply plug the encoder directly into any PC. The programming software automatically detects the encoder, then you simply type in the desired resolution, click the "Program" button and you're done.
Equipment can often have many encoders with various resolutions providing feedback to the control system. RPE-PV encoders can be kept on the shelf and programmed as needed. Users simply program the encoder for the appropriate resolution and equipment is up and running in no time. This not only reduces machine downtime, but saves on inventory costs as well.
