This example shows an application of length
measurement at a production line. The rotary encoder,
RP-112A, is connected to a roller shaft, and measures
moving distance of an object. An appropriate displaying
unit can be set up on the RV-3150 Reversible Counter
using operation functions of the numbers of generated
pulses and roller distance. Connecting a PLC* to the
RV-3150 via comparator output signal, this application
can output command signal for cutting off and generate
an alert to a signal tower. The measured value can be
displayed on a large-sized external display unit by BCD
output, stored on a PC using RS-232C interface.
Moreover, continuous recording can be available on an
external recording equipment via analog output.
