Setup AquadB 5V encoder

Valid for S300, S400, S600, S700

Connector

S300 X5
S400 X4
S600 X5
S700 X5 (with option card POS-I/O-Monitor)

Setup

Setup must be done with the setup software (Terminal screen) with ASCII commands:

S400/S600 S300/S700
DIS Software – Disable DIS Software – Disable
FBTYPE 8 Motor feedback: incremental encoder (A quad B) FBTYPE 19 Motor feedback: incremental encoder (A quad B)
ENCLINES x

x = number of increments per motor turn

ENCLINES x

x = number of increments per motor turn

ENCMODE 0 set connector function to input ENCMODE 0 set connector function to input
GEARMODE 3 set 5V encoder als feedback ENCVON 1 set 5V voltage output to X1
SAVE save the changed parameters to the EEPROM SAVE save the changed parameters to the EEPROM
COLDSTART Restart the amplifier to activate the parameters COLDSTART Restart the amplifier to activate the parameters

Check the incremental signals

Open the screen page "monitor". If you turn the motor axis clockwise, the current angle must increase.

Attention: Do not use incremental encoders with hanging load!
