Single module two-speed synchro to digital converters feature 16-bit resolution and ±0.005 degrees of accuracy hs. The devices convert two-speed synchro or resolver inputs of 11.8 or 26V or 90V 400 Hz or 90V 60Hz into 16-bit parallel binary outputs representing angle. Speed ratios of 1 x 10, 16, 18, 32, 36, 64, or 128 are available. The converters can track rates up to 1,000 degrees/sec and also have a dc velocity output and built-in test digital indication of correct operation.
