Figure 12 shows the structure of the “Sensor & Probes” sub-aspect.


Figure 12 – Encoder Channel Sensor & Probes

The EncoderSensorType Object offers Encoder sensor related Variables. This component of the EncoderChannelType Object also offers Methods for preset control and latch functionality.

The EncoderProbesType Object allows access to probe related functionality of the Encoder Object. Each probe is represented by an EncoderProbeType Object. The EncoderProbeType offers Variables and Methods allowing Clients to start the latch function and to obtain latch state and latch position values.

The “Sensor” and the “Probe1” Objects also generate EventTypes providing information about latch activity and latch position: EncoderRefLatchEventType and EncoderProbeLatchEventType.
