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 units. This is the raw position read back from the device. When FB1.PUNIT = 0 the output format is 32:32, the upper 32 bits represent the multi-turns and the lower 32 bits represent the position of the feedback.
An example of how to read the feedback data:
