Encoder error after updating firmware
I have a S600 drive with a DDR motor (model: DH083M-23-1310, SN: 07DDH083M-679, this model has an EnDAT encoder).
System was working with firmware standard version 5.76, but when i updated firmware version to 6.98 (I need this to install EtherCAT expansion card), drive shows a F04 error when the movement starts.
I have tested previous firmware versions and the problem is present in all 6.xx versions. Drive does not support newer versions of 6.98.
Did anyone have a similar problem? It could be that the encoder is damaged, or maybe the motor version is too old. I tested it with other DDR motor and drive works.
Thanks in advance,

You can try reinitializing the motor’s Endat encoder by going to the Terminal Screen of the S600 Drive GUI and then entering HSAVE <Ent> HSAVE <ENT>. Then cycle power the 24 volt logic on the S600.
When using a FBTYPE = 4 EnDat (Heidenhain)
The HSAVE command saves the following variables.
