RV4 Card Setup

I'm trying to setup my RV4 card to acquire data on an incremental encoder.  Is there a module I need to add in to use the IE channels?  I'm unable to turn them on from the channel setup tab.

 

Thanks

Hi Pat,

You'll need to go to Channel setup workbook->Tools->Channel setup visibility..->select TorsionMode; once TorsionMode is selected go to the TorsionMode column-> change Torsion to Incremental Encoder.  Now you should able to use the channel for Incremental Encoder, beware when the module is in Incremental Encoder mode you can power two Incremental Encoder; if it's in Torsion, you can use up to four individual tachos.
