Can the Digital I/O card be used for encoder feedback on the Altivar 58?

Yes, the digital I/O card number VW3A58202U does include encoder inputs.

For incremental encoder (TTL, line driver, push-pull) or open collector type (NPN detector, three-wire inductive, or photoelectric sensor).
Nominal voltage: 24 Vdc (19.2 to 30 V).
Input impedance: 785 W ?10%.
Maximum signal frequency: 33 kHz with motor operating at drive controller high speed setting (HSP).
It is preferable to use a 24 V external supply for the incremental encoder.

Also, the ATV58 type FVC drives that include encoder inputs on the main control board I-O terminals.
