I am just getting started with Opto Control and need a little nudge.
I want to use the quad counter to determine rate(RPM ETC) as will as total counts that will be converted to engineering units for length.
The documentation is not clear on how to do that. Do I “get counter” and compare to a previous one at a predetermined time interval for rate?
What exactly does the output of the IDC5 Q? frequency or counts?
I studied form 1784 but it does not address quad counters.
