DB9 Encoder Introduction

When designing the Marksman Duo product line, FoxJet, responding to customer requests,
implemented a product line encoder change from the previously used Eurofast connector to
a more widely used industrial standard DB9 connector. In order to support this new
connector, FoxJet developed a new encoder with a 25 integrated cable and a DB9
connector. This new RoHs compliant encoder, part number 5760820-IJ, is smaller and
easier to install yet maintains the flexibility that was available in the previous encoder.

Controllers Supported: Marksman Pro (Revision H or higher)


Marksman Pro Vx (Revision H or higher)
ALL Marksman Duo controllers

Currently, the Marksman Net will continue to feature the Eurofast encoder connector and
utilize the Eurofast encoder, part number 2464-603, which is still an available part. The
Marksman Net is expected to be updated to the DB9 format in the coming months.

Backward and Forward Encoder Compatibility

FoxJet understands the need to provide forward and backward compatibility options.
FoxJet has developed an Encoder Compatibility kit for use with either a previous revision
controller and the new DB9 encoder OR a new controller and the Eurofast encoder. This kit,
2465-178 is currently available at a list price of $140.00. The instructions for that kit are
on the following pages for your convenience.

This kit provides the ability to either use a Eurofast based encoder assembly (2464-603) with the latest
revision of Marksman Pro or Duo controllers or use the D-sub based encoder assembly (5760-820-IJ) with
previous revision Marksman Pro or all revisions of the Marksman Net. Refer to the sections below for
installation setups noting that some items in the kit may not be used in all setups.

Installation Setup A: DB9 Based Encoder on the Marksman Pro (Rev. A-G) or the Marksman Net

Controllers used in this setup:

Marksman Pro Revisions A-G


Marksman Net All Revisions

Instructions:

1. Install Encoder Assembly (5760-820-IJ) onto conveying system. See individual controller user
manual for more information on installation of encoder.
2. Attach the included adapter dongle (2465-177) to the end of the DB9M connector of the encoder
cable.
3. Attach the included adapter cable (2465-175) to the end of the adapter dongle.
4. Attach the adapter cable to the encoder input connector on the controller.

Instructions:

1. Install Encoder Assembly (2464-603) onto conveying system. See individual controller user manual
for more information on installation of encoder.
2. Attach the included adapter cable (2465-175) to M12 Male connector on the encoder. Note, the
original 10 foot M12 Female to Female cable accompanying the 2464-603 Encoder Kit will not be
used in this configuration.
3. Attach the DB9 Extension cable (5760-155-010) to the adapter cable. This is not a required cable,
but may be used to increase the distance between the encoder and the controller.
4. Attach the DB9 Extension cable to the encoder port of the controller.
