What is a Quadrature Encoder?

Quadrature encoders are used to measure both the speed and direction (clockwise or counter-clockwise) of a device. Each encoder has two tracks, A and B (thus two inputs are required), that are 90° out of phase, which enable it to provide accurate position information. It will count up when phase A precedes, and count down…

Do the Maple Systems HMI+PLCs (HMC) and PLCs (MLC) support High-Speed Counters (HSC)?

Yes. Both our HMI+PLCs (HMC) and PLCs (MLC) support High-Speed Counters in MAPware-7000. See the specific Series IO Module guide for more information on which IO modules support High-Speed Counters (HSC) and what registers are used for configuration. Most supported IO modules offer 2 or 4 high speed inputs. Both quadrature and standard HSCs are…

Do the Maple Systems HMI+PLCs (HMC) and PLCs (MLC) support Pulse Width Modulation (PWM)?

Yes. Both our HMI+PLCs (HMC) and PLCs (MLC) support Pulse Width Modulation in MAPware-7000. See the specific Series IO Module guide for more information specifics on which IO modules support Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) and what registers are used for configuration. Four modes of PWM are supported for most IO modules; Normal, Clockwise/Counter-Clockwise (CW/CCW), Pulse/Direction,…
