Connecting encoder with PM554
Greetings, i found ur post about connecting incremental encoder to PM554 using normal digital input.I have a same requirement to be solved. kindly give ur guidance if u hav succeded in it. Thnks in advance...

you need to use the input on board of your cpu or in a input board as fast counter input, using the definition and recommendations that you can read inside the help in Control/Automation Builder.
If the maximum speed of your encoder exceed the capacity of speed counter of the fast counter in the input board, you need to use one specific unit, Encoder & PWM Module CD522.
Hope this help you
I do not think that the normal digital input module will be the correct selection .
the encoder pulses will change its situation faster than the scan time of the module .
I would say using function module (high speed counter)will solve this issue .
as I saw in the AC500 Manual I think you need to check the FM562
