This instrument is designed to simulate the function of most types of incremental encoders; it allows the engineer to fully test a control system that uses a rotary or linear shaft encoder, without the need for any mechanical movement.
In addition the user can control the exact number of square wave signals applied to the output, this allows the engineer to control the input pulses generated down to just one pulse, so the user can monitor in slow motion the operation of a control system.
Access to the instrument is through a standard nine pin D type plug, the user simply connects the simulator to the terminals or plug of their control system.
The power for the instrument is taken from the control system, it will operate on any voltage from 5 to 30 volts 100mA DC.

Plant Control and Automation | Electronic Control & Rotary Encoders IndustrySearch Trusted Supplier
PCA has been providing Australian industry with electronic control solutions since 1968. We pioneered the introduction of the proximity and heavy duty photoelectric switch as replacement for mechanical limit switches, and the use of electronic process control in place of relay logic. In 1981 we commenced assembly in Australia of rotary encoder products to provide Australia fast delivery times.
Today we have available a vast range of encoder products from simple rotary incremental encoders, to the complex absolute single and mutiturn encoders with interfaces to suit most industrial data highways and Ethernet communications. Other products include the Optipact a unique non contact linear encoder, Inclinometers for measuring angles and a range of interface modules and panel meters.
