The Analog Output Module gives the MicroLYNX the ability to control drives that require an analog control signal such as variable frequency drives, servo and brush-type DC motor drives. It adds two 0 to +5 volt output channels to the functionality of the MicroLYNX. Each channel features 12 bit resolution and may be programmed to one of three operational modes: voltage, velocity or position. Each of these modes may be set to a 2.5V centerpoint for plus or minus operation.
In many cases, this module may save the expense and complexity of using a PLC by enabling MicroLYNX to handle applications such as Indexing Conveyor, Material Handling and Feed Rate Override.
