Spindle RPM Encoder

An incremental encoder is used to monitor spindle RPM and also for synchronised threading on lathes.



INFORMATION: The maximum pulse frequency on encoder inputs for MASSO G3 controllers is 60kHz.


INFORMATION: The maximum pulse frequency on encoder inputs for MASSO G2 controllers is 8Khz


INFORMATION: The MASSO G2 can be modified to 20Khz by changing 3 Optocouplers and removing some capacitors. For additional information on this modification please contact Masso Support.


INFORMATION: All input signals 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. These settings are automatically saved.
