problems with the 1019

Postby cnblue » Fri Jul 21, 2017 2:20 am

Hi all,

I have the PhidgetInterfaceKit 8/8/8 1019 and I coding in C++.
I am trying to read the pluses of the incremental encoder(atm102:http://www.cui.com/product/components/encoders/incremental/modular/amt10-series) in order to calculate the rotation angle. The encoder I'm using sends 512 pluses per revolution.
Could someone help me? It will be great if an example is available.

Thanks in advance,
cnblue

The digital inputs on the 1019 do not react fast enough to read the pulses from an incremental encoder unless the motor is moving very slowly. Even then, you'd have to write your own code to interpret the quadrature signal. Instead, you should get an encoder interface like the 1057, 1047, or ENC1000 (the ENC1000 requires a VINT hub).
