The Analog Input/Joystick Input Module adds two 0 to 5 VDC analog input channels to the MicroLYNX motion control system. Both channels can be used for data acquisition, or either channel may be used to directly control motion.
The user-selected Joystick channel can be programmed to set the range, zero, dead band and sensitivity. A Setup Joystick command is provided to allow the user to easily set up the Joystick parameters.
Each analog channel uses a 12 bit D/A for better resolution as well as a fixed single pole analog filter with a cutoff frequency of 658 Hz to reduce noise that can be present in industrial environments.
