A2 Absolute Optical Shaft Encoder

The A2 optical encoder is a 12 bit absolute rotary position sensor which reports a shaft angle within a single 360 degree rotation of a shaft. Unlike incremental, sometimes called relative, style encoders the A2 provides true (absolute) shaft position eliminating the need for a home or zero cycle after a supply voltage power cycle. The A2 communicates over a RS 485 style serial bus utilizing US Digital`s SEI (Serial Encoder Interface) which allows for simple, quick and convenient networking of multiple SEI devices on a single network. PLCs, motion controllers and computers can also reside on the SEI bus as well by use of US Digital`s SEI to USB interface device. For complete information about the SEI bus please refer to the SEI Communications Protocol webpage.The A2 is also available with an optional analog output. The analog output option provides a maximum voltage range of 0 to 4.095 volts with 12 bit resolution. The output voltage may be easily scaled by simple SEI commands to provide other maximum voltage levels as well. From the factory the analog output voltage is set to 0 to 3.599 VDC range. Please note that with the A2 analog output option only one device may reside on a SEI bus.
