Emulate quadrature encoder


Recommended Posts

I have an application where I need to slave some peripheral equipment to a Power PMAC controlled motor, the peripheral equipment takes an incremental quadrature signal.


Is there a way to output a quadrature signal from the PMAC? My first thought was to create a phantom stepper motor on a spare Acc24-E3 card, slave the phantom motor to the real motor, and use the Pulse outputs on the encoder connector to drive the peripheral equipment.


So, I know we can do Pulse and direction with the E3 card, can we emulate a quadrature signal instead? If not, is there another accessory card that would provide a quadrature signal?
