Heidenhain recently donated some equipment to UNC Charlotte’s Center for Precision Metrology (CPM). As part of the UNC Charlotte William States Lee College of Engineering, the Metrology Lab is central to the education and research efforts in the areas of precision engineering and metrology and includes a wide variety of high-end measurement instruments. Heidenhain provides measurement research support to the University community and local industry. The Heidenhain donation of a new EIB interface box with cabling and ACCOM software enables important upgrades to be realized to the system.

Interface electronics from Heidenhain adapt the encoder signals to the interface of the subsequent electronics. They are used when the subsequent electronics cannot directly process the output signals from Heidenhain encoders or if additional interpolation of the signals is necessary. Because of their high IP 65 degree of protection, interface electronics with a box design are well suited for a rough industrial environment. An example of that environment is where machine tools operate. The inputs and outputs are equipped with robust M23 and M12 connecting elements. The stable cast-metal housing offers protection against physical damage as well as against electrical interference.
