Rockwell Automation Encoder Output Module Product Specification and Benefits

Drive the Encoder Output Module signal’s reliability by reducing wiring systems and eliminating the need to split encoder signals between motor and drive. The encoder offered by Rockwell Automation is one of the leading-class modules that feature fast synchronization of your devices to your integrated motion on EtherNet/IP system. The compact design increases in both term of flexibility and efficiency. Whether you have already own the Kinetix or PowerFlex drives, the module is supporting both axis of motions. You can make integration to both drives over EtherNet/IP or virtually and not just those nearby.

Furthermore, its DIN-rail mounted system gives a perfect standalone standard Encoder Output Module capable to generate various output pulses in multiple encoder protocols to various customer-supplied devices just like camera when used in the line-scan vision systems. The module support both virtual and real axes for systems using the integrated motion over EtherNet/IP network.

The Main Benefit and Features of Encoder Output Module

Encoder Output Module can reduce wiring with configurable output to pulse train or quadrature. In several application, it is enable to add-on instruction for role-based access control to routines. Her is several other features to support its function:

- DIN-rail installation to eliminate the requirement of encoders mounting on the machine
- Support synchronization to any axis of motion and not limited to nearby axis
- Support synchronization to the third-party devices to the Rockwell Automation integrated motion system
- Dual-ethernet ports for various topology networks (star, linear or ring)
- Configurable typical integrated motion over EtherNet/IP network using different Ethernet topology system using CompactLogix, ControlLogix and GuardLogix controllers
- Configurable with program Studio 5000 Logix Designer software

Studio 5000 Logix Designer Encoder Output Module Software

Studio 5000 Logix Designer Encoder Output Module software is the high-end programmable software introduced by Rockwell Automation. With one single programming concept it designed to cope all disciplines like drives, processes, safety motion and discrete. Main features of the software are including:

- Easy to configure with help of graphical wizards and automatic tag
- Simplified programming with support multiple language and features
- Logical Organizer and Controller Organizer views help you to monitor the systems and find what you need easily
- Create code simultaneously

Encoder Output Module General Applications

Encoder Output Module has hot foil embossers with adhesive systems and Glue systems for this application as below:

- Inline printers
- Camera systems
- Balancing instrumentation
- Registration systems
- Line tracking

To meet all of those instanced demands, the encoder output modules is configurable in three different typical configuration including linear, ring and star topology.

Encoder Output Module Environmental Specification

Encoder Output Module has operating temperature standard from 0 to 50-degree Celsius with additional specification as below:

- Storage temperature from -40 to 70-degree Celsius
- Humidity rate from 5 to 95% non-condensing
- Mechanical vibration: 2.0g peak 55-500 Hz
- Mechanical shock: 15 g


Rockwell Automation offers wide range of Encoder Output Module servo drives profiles for a broad range of applications from single axis component drive to multi-axis modular drives. All of the solutions designed to help machine builder as well as designed to achieve the optimum system performance. Encoder output module provides ranges of benefit for driving signals faster and more efficient by taking benefit of synchronization of the integrated motion on EtherNet/IP system. It can connect to any axis motion with highly configurable system.
