An incremental encoder is used to monitor spindle RPM and also for synchronised threading on lathes
|Pin 1||Signal A||Opto input (5 to 24v)|
|Pin 2||Signal B||Opto input (5 to 24v)|
|Pin 3||Signal Z – Index||Opto input (5 to 24v)|
- Recommended maximum encoder PPR is 100, PPR above this will reduce the maximum RPM range.
- All inputs can be easily inverted by selecting the input in the INPUTS list and pressing the space-bar key on the keyboard to invert the input signal.

Upgrading the encoder inputs to take up frequency upto 20kHz
- By default MASSO can take upto 8kHz encoder signals, to upgrade the inputs so that the can take upto 20kHz please follow the below procedures.
- To check the maximum frequency as per your machine spindle RPM and encoder PPR, please use THIS CALCULATOR
