The ITF-21-BiSS-MIT adapter makes any 12-bit to 32-bit BiSS-C absolute encoder compatible with the popular Mitsubishi Electric MR-J4 servo amplifier. Developed through our collaboration with Mitsubishi Electric, the ITF-21-BiSS-MIT adapter allows users to take advantage of the high-speed, bidirectional communication supported by both protocols while providing flexibility and a convenient way to use their preferred encoder.

  • Converts the BiSS-C signal to the Mitsubishi High Speed Serial protocol
  • Compatible with MR-J4 servo amplifier: MR-J4-_A/B-RJJ021 (Note that resolutions above 27 bits will be capped at 26 bits due to limitations of the MR-J4 driver.)
  • Support for both two-wire half duplex and four-wire full duplex Mitsubishi serial communication
  • Includes an LED indicator and PC software for diagnostics
  • Setting configuration and firmware upgrade via USB-C and PC software
  • Works with cables up to 20 meters long

Applications and Industries

The ITF-21-BiSS-MIT serial adapter supports the MR-J4 servo amplifier typically used in motion control systems in equipment for plastics and textile processing, packaging, paper and converting, forming and semiconductor fabrication.
