Analog Interface Unit (AIU)
The Analog Interface Unit converts the digital output of a ProScale linear encoder system to a 0-5 or 0-10 VDC analog voltage output.
The Analog Interface Unit (AIU) is an hardware device that provides the user of a ProScale digital measurement system with a method of generating an analog DC output voltage that is proportional to the currently displayed measurement system position. This output can be used as an A/D converter input on a PLC or other device that utilizes an analog input signal.
The AIU uses the SPC output from the ProScale Readout and converts it to an internal pre-programmed set of lower and upper position limits. The AIU uses a ratio utilizing these factors and generates an analog output via a 12-bit digital-to-analog converter. This provides 4096 discrete voltage steps over the defined measurement range. Unit mounts to cabinet or enclosure via standard 35 mm DIN rail.
