Sensoray's model 7421 is a low cost interface that saves space in STD bus systems by combining five functions into one module. Four flat cables connect the Model 7421 to external breakout boards.
Three 16-bit up/down counter channels are optimized for incremental encoders. Each channel accepts two phased TTL or RS-422 signals to track encoder direction and displacement. Unlike conventional counters, the 7421 counters do not accumulate errors when the encoder dithers or changes direction. The 7421 supplies 5-volt power to each encoder channel.
Eight differential input channels are multiplexed to a sample/hold and successive approximation A/D. A resistor-programmable instrumentation amplifier allows gains of 1 to 1000. The 15-volt outputs from the DC/DC supply ensure A/D linearity for 10 volt input signals.
Four voltage output channels may be programmed for 0 to +10 volts. One channel has a remote sense input to minimize line loss errors. All output voltages are reset to zero volts whenever a bus reset occurs.
The 7421's watchdog timer output may be routed to either bus reset or nonmaskable interrupt. It may be enabled or disabled under program control. The timer is automatically disabled whenever a bus reset occurs.
The Model 7421 has twenty-four digital I/O lines with industry standard pinouts for solid state relay boards. Each line is software programmable as an input or output. The status of output lines may be monitored by software. Whenever a system reset occurs all output channels are turned off.
