Interface electronics from HEIDENHAIN adapt the encoder signals to the interface of the subsequent electronics. They are used when the subsequent electronics cannot directly process the output signals from HEIDENHAIN encoders, or if additional interpolation of the signals is necessary.
HEIDENHAIN interface electronics are available in various mechanical designs.
Because of their high IP 65 degree of protection, interface electronics with a box design are well suited for a rough industrial environment, for example where machine tools operate. The inputs and outputs are equipped with robust M23 and M12 connecting elements. The stable cast-metal housing offers protection against physical damage as well as against electrical interference.
The EXE/IBV 100 series distinguishes itself from the EXE/IBV 600 series primarily in its compact dimensions.
The interface electronics with a plug design save a great deal of space: there is room for the entire interpolation and digitizing electronics in an extended D-sub connector housing. This offers protection against physical damage (IP 40 protection) and electrical interference. Appropriate accessory parts can be used to firmly attach the connecting elements, and stack several connectors on top of each other.
Version for integration
There are also versions of the interface electronics intended for integration in existing electronics. These pluggable boards must be protected against electrical and physical influences. The IDP series consists of pure interpolation and digitizing electronics, and is intended for integration as input assemblies in non-HEIDENHAIN electronics.
Top-hat rail design
The interface electronics for top-hat rail mounting are suited for operation in an electrical cabinet with simple fastening on a standard DIN rail.
