Resolving Servo Feedback Choices >

This PowerPoint presentation explains the differences between different types of servo motor feedback devices, including: The differences between absolute and incremental devices. The differences between analog and digital devices. Typical…

Biss encoder failure >

My customers have had a string of BISS encoder failures lately. I fear there will be many more as these just dont see as rugged as needed. Is there an encoder I can replace the BISS feedback device with  that will stand up to vibration. I need…

BiSS-C >

BiSS-C is a digital encoder protocol that permits a wide range of possible formats. The AKD supports the most common BiSS-C format, and can only guarantee support for the encoders listed in "Documented BiSS-C Encoders". To determine if a BiSS-C…

How to Read the Raw Data of a Multi-turn Encoder when using the AKD Drive’s Primary Feedback X10 >

How to Read the Raw Data of a Multi-turn Encoder when using the AKD Drive’s Primary Feedback X10 Parameter FB1.P allows the user to read the position of the primary feedback device connected to X10. The position can be read as counts or in custom…

Supported Linear Feedback Devices for AKD / S300 / S700 >

In order to support linear motors the following linear feedback devices have been tested with our drives:

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…
