This is a breakout board based on LS7366R quadrature counter IC. The Quadruple LS7366R buffer board is designed to interface directly to an encoder output such as the hall-effect encoders on our IG32, IG42, and IG52 gear motors with hall effect encoder or optical encoders. Equipped with a SPI interface, the Quadruple LS7366R buffer board makes is simple to monitor the position of the motors, keep track of angular position, speed, total distance traveled, etc.. The Quadruple LS7366R buffer board can be configured to work with a quadrature output or a single pulse and direction.
There are a series of solder jumpers next to the encoder headers. These solder jumpers provide 1k pull-ups to A channel, and B channel inputs. For use with our hall-effect motors the solder pads need to be connected. The output of the encoder is grounded as it senses the rotating magnet. These 1k pull-ups are required to pull the signal high so that the encoder pulses return to 5V after the magnet passes the sensor. If you are interfacing with an optical encoder the solder jumpers must be left open.
A master battery disconnect switch is a lever-operated battery cutoff switch that will disconnect power for the battery circuit.
The router is the central controller of the indoor GPS system. It communicate via USB with the dashboard and with the beacons, wirelessly in ISM band. Indoor Positioning System (IPS)
