Input module for incremental encoder

This module provides an interface for incremental encoders with an RS422 port. A counter with a quadrature decoder and a null point signal latch can be read and activated by the controller. The controller can also set the counter. In the corresponding operating mode, a rising edge signal at the input then loads the counter value into the latch register and initialises the counter.

The speed (increments/ms) is logged automatically and can be transmitted to the controller instead of the latch value. The gate input can be used to lock the counter. The ref input can be used to activate the null point function. The module uses cam outputs to signal whether the counter value is within the predefined windows. The module provides the power supply for the encoder.
