Serial Synchronous Interface Module

Dec. 8, 2010
Suited for motion control and position sensing, the SNAP-SCM-SSI I/O module offers two isolated serial synchronous inputs (SSI) for acquiring data from optical and mechanical encoders and other types of linear and rotary transducers.

The module can receive input from either binary or Gray code encoders, allowing the serial module to process and communicate position-related data from heavy-duty industrial machinery and apparatus—such as machine tools, stepper motors, servos, and other moving or robotic components.

Other features include the ability to set a SSI clock frequency up to 2.5 MHz, cable length up to 500 feet and can be configured for clock frequency, data bits (encoder resolution) and time interval between data samples. The module can play with Opto's PAC Ethernet, PAC serial I/O processors, standard SNAP PAC standalone, rack-mounted controllers and all SNAP PAC wired and wireless controllers.
