C Series Counter Input Module


Performs counter timer tasks such as encoder position measurement, event counting, period measurement, pulse measurement, and frequency measurement in C Series systems.

The C Series Counter Input Module features flexible, 32-bit counters. You can configure each channel to read a single pulse train or combine them to read up to four incremental encoders. You can also directly connect sensors with open-collector or push-pull outputs by using an internal, switchable pull-up resistor. Additionally, you can use the C Series Counter Input Module to perform encoder position and velocity measurements as well as to synchronize the counters with other analog, digital, and counter measurements in your chassis.The C Series Counter Input Module includes the NI-DAQmx driver and configuration utility that simplify configuration and measurements. NI-DAQmx supports NI programming environments as well as Python, ANSI C, C#.NET, and MathWorks MATLAB® software.
