What is the number of pulses from an encoder that the Altivar ATV58 drive can handle?

In the ATV58 Type FVC drives the parameter for number of pulses is adjustable from 100 to 5000.
The type FVC drives are compatible with incremental optical encoder with RS422 compatible differential outputs.
Impedance = 330 W maximum
Maximum 5000 pulses/revolution
Minimum 100 pulses/revolution
Maximum frequency: 200 kHz at high speed

For the standard drive with Digital I-O card VW3A58202U the range is more limited.
Select an encoder that provides the maximum number of pulses per revolution (ppr) while not exceeding the maximum frequency of the digital inputs of the digital I/O card, which is 33 KHz.
