Xycom Automation, a subsidiary of Pro-face America, recently announced several new I/O products for its Graphic Logic Controller (GLC) and LogiTouch controller families. These modules include a high-speed counter, single-axis positioning, and three 32-point, 24 V dc I/O modules. They connect to the GLC's distributed I/O Flex Network, which allows a GLC or LogiTouch unit to control I/O points up to 12 Mbps at up to 200m for a maximum of 63 nodes and 1,008 points.

The high-speed counter can be used as a linear counter, ring counter, or frequency counter. It accepts inputs from rotary encoders using either open collector or line driver connections. The counter can be used in four modes: dc input/16-bit up counter, 2 channels; dc input/32-bit up counter, 1 channel; differential input, 2-phase line input/32-bit up/down counter, 1 channel; and dc input/32-bit up/down counter.

The single-axis positioning unit can be used as a pulse output-type driver for a servo or stepping motor, and allows the GLC to perform as a single-axis positioning controller. This module is capable of up to 90 points of positioning memory (ABS/INC) and can use CW or CCW pulse output. Output frequency ranges are 0 to 250 Kpps, 0 to 500 Kpps, 0 to 1 Mpps, and 0 to 2 Mpps. The maximum output pulses are 32-bit, allowing a range of
