    1700 Series Resolver Interface

    AMCI has engineered a simple, efficient interface that provides a direct resolver connection to the 1771 I/O system. This resolver interface reduces costs through easier setup and installation. Designed to interface to AMCI's extensive line of industrial resolvers, an off-the shelf solution is available for all of your absolute position sensing applications.

    Both Dual and Single Slot modules are available for the 1771 I/O system.
    The Dual Slot Modules are fully programmable from the 1771 processor or from its on-board keypad, and offer position resolutions of up to 8,192 counts per turn for single turn applications, and up to 4096 counts/turn over 180 turns for multi-turn applications. Additional features include programmable count direction and various preset and offset parameters.

    The Single Slot Modules offer most of the features of the Dual Slot modules without the on-board keypad. These modules allow you to bring resolver data into your 1771 I/O system when rack space is at a premium.

    With tens of thousands of modules in use today, product reliability and loyalty are unparalleled.
