Multiturn feedback options | 14 Oct 2014 | |

Multiturn feedback options

We offer 2 absolute multiturn feedback options 1) Endat and 2) Biss. I believe that Biss is absolute for 13 bits (2^13 = 8192 turns) and Endat is absolute for 12 bits (2^12 = 4096).

Please confirm and provide any documentation that states this information. This is a typical question customers ask.

The answer is it differs depending on the size AKM motor you have.  Most of this information is available in the AKM selection Guide. 

Endat distinguishable revolutions is 12 bit for all motor sizes.

BiSS distinguishable revolutions is 12 bit for all motor sizes.
