Six Channel Quadrature Incremental Encoder PCI Card

The PCI323 is a 6x quadrature incremental encoder PCI card, designed for use in general automation applications.

The PCI323 quadrature incremental encoder interface offers six incremental encoder interface channels, each with its own 32-bit position counter. This is an ideal solution for all applications where several encoders must be connected with a maximum of flexibility and a minimum of overhead.

The PCI323 is also available as M-Module, VMEbus (3U and 6U) and CompactPCI (3U and 6U) product.

  • Executes local firmware from ROM or custom firmware downloaded by the host
  • Mailbox with polling and/or host interrupt, local interrupt mechanism
  • Easy host interface, PCI321/PCI322 alike
  • 32-bit counter for each encoder input
  • Index signals can be configured for detection of rising, falling or any edge
  • Index can be used to load the corresponding counter with a pre-set value
  • Counter value has one LSB uncertainty during movement and is accurate at ease
