This is a signal conversion box to convert 2-phase signals (TTL) from the linear gauge sensor GS/BS series into open - collector (DG-0010) or line driver (DG-0020) .

This conversion box allows direct connection with the PLC *. It can also be transmitted over long distances.

*PLC (programmable controllers)


Compact (23(W) × 29(H) × 108(L) mm) and can be mounted on a control panel using DIN rail.

*DIM rail mounting kit is prepared by customer.
*Din rail: CKD-80 32/35 mm, made by TAKACHI ELECTRONICS ENCLOSURE CO., LTD

Precautions for usage when the DG-0010/0020 is connected with PLC.

  • Output of the linear gauge sensor is pulse signal of 4 µm ( 1µm resolution ) 40 µm ( 10 µm resolution ).
    In order to read in 1 µm, 10 µm unit, the followings are required for the PLC side
    * Power supply (5 V, 100 mA) for a linear gauge sensor is supplied from DG-0010/0020.

What is needed for PLC side

- 4-multiplying function
- Output voltage (for signal conversion box :DC12 to 24V (120 mA / 12V)

  • When the cable between DG-0020 and PLC exceeds 30m or more

Cable Material: D5 cable (composite 5-core vinyl cable) should be changed into R6 (twisted pair).
(MX-700/7100 series uses D5.) This is the countermeasure to reduce the noise influence caused by long distance signal transmission.
