The "VB Series" products line contains VME
compatible synchro / resolver converters and absolute encoder
systems. These particular cards are ideal for any rotary motion
and related process, control, or simulator type application with
any VME compatible system.
up to eight
resolver or synchro conversion on a single-width, standard 6U
height VME card.
SeriesResolver/Encoder systems feature up to 6 axis of
shaft angle position encoding with a choice of single or
multiturn resolvers used as the sensor inputs.
CCC's full line of "Industry Standard" Synchro/Resolver
converters, and Absolute Encoder products, are used to populate
standard multifunction VME decoder cards. Differing converters
may be mixed to minimize real estate for a particular
and military grade (extended)
temperature range versions are available. Accuracy applies over
the operating temperature range, and 883 level B processing is
available on all units.
Transformer isolation is
offered for all inputs and outputs, eliminating concerns for
ground loops, differing potentials and high voltage field
transients affecting the card itself and the VME Bus backplane.
Maximum versatility has been employed on all "VB" products to
assure universal compatibility in addressing, timing, system,
and microcomputer independence.
All VB Series converter cards are configured as A24:D16
DTB Slaves. They will respond to address modifier codes
"3D" or 39 for standard addressing, and "2D" or "29" when
selected for short I/O type addressing.
The VME interface is a very straight-forward register based
design; simply address the channel and read or write the data.
Status registers are
used to provide card configuration data, and on a per channel
basis, to provide channel configuration and fault status.
The high speed register based interface allows these cards
to operate reliably in any software environment, with
Buffered latches are provided on all data lines to assure
stable read and write cycles as commanded by the host. Address
and control lines feature single point terminations to minimize
any loading of the backplane. All signal output converters are
provided with inherent
