zettlex Biss-C encoder protocol compatible question.
We are trying to use the zettlex Biss-C encoder on the AKD Drive.
I received the following e-mail in the middle of the purchase process.
(Below message from zettlex....)
[........Before processing, please may you confirm that the end customer would like BIS1. Our BIS2 & BIS3 are more compatible with mainstream controllers.
Please see page 29 of the attached.........]
Which of the options of Biss1,2,3 of the zettlex encoder is suitable for AKD?
We have to choose one of the three options for the Biss-C.
I'll attached the manual.
Thank you for team....

The AKD supports BiSS mode B and BiSS mode C (Renishaw).
BiSS mode B uses absolute data/clock and the analog sine/cosine encoder signals.
BiSS mode C uses only the data/clock for absolute position. The AKD supports only Renishaw BiSS C encoders (or equivalent).
