EIB 741 is an external interface box for precise position measurements. This network-capable measuring device removes the requirement of a PC interface card usually necessary when connecting measurement apparatus to an industrial PC or laptop.
The EIB 741 works well at inspection stations and multipoint inspection apparatuses as well as for mobile data acquisition, such as in machine inspection and calibration. A maximum of four Heidenhain encoders, either with sinusoidal incremental signals (1 Vpp) or with EnDat interfaces (EnDat 2.1 and EnDat 2.1), can be connected to the EIB 741.
This external interface box subdivides periods of incremental signals up to 4,096-fold for measured-value generation. The integrated measured-value memory lets the EIB 741 save up to 250,000 measured values per axis. Internal or external triggers can be used for axis-specific storage of the measured values.
A standard Ethernet interface using TCP/IP or UDP communication is standard for data output. This permits a direct connection to a PC or laptop. The type of measured-value transfer can be selected through the operating mode (transfer of individual values, block transfer, or transfer upon software request).
Driver software for Windows, Linux, and LabVIEW comes with the items supplied to process measured values on the PC. The driver software facilitates programming as well as includes programming examples demonstrating the performance range of the EIB 741.
