Resolver-to-Encoder Signal Converter

Model RTE-0x
The converter accepts input signals in the range 3kHz - 20kHz on the SIN, COS and REF inputs. A Type II servo loop is employed to track the inputs and convert the input SIN and COS information into a digital representation of the input angle. The bandwith of the converter is set internally at 1kHz. Maximum tracking rate is 500 rps at 12-bit resolution. The converters are available in configurations of 1, 2, 3 or 4 axes.

Angular position is available in a form of incremental A quad B. The encoder emulation outputs A, B and Index continuously produce signals equivalent to a 1024 line (4096 quadrature counts) encoder.

An analog velocity output signal provides an accurate representation of input angular velocity of the input signals, in either a clockwise or counterclockwise direction. The analog velocity output is scaled to produce 150 rps/V dc +/- 15% and its maximum value is equivalent to +/- 375 rps.
