Hi Perry,

No, for sure it will not work with 5V.

You can make simple converter (see attached) or you need ot find encoder with 24V PNP or NPN interface.

Thanks for your fast response.

I have a Dynapar amplifier that converts 5v differential to 12v pnp or npn. Could I get away with 12vdc or

must I use 24v.

It won't work with 5V or 12V. Per the datasheet, the -E1B is looking for 24V signals. It's minimum logic 1 is 17 volts. Been there.

You'll need a converter that takes it all the way to 24V or you'll need different outputs on your encoder. If you use a converter, make sure its frequency response is high enough to handle the encoder signal.
