Ok but you could still try the invert option to see, only a click in a box.

I only use the encoder outputs from my servo drive, I only have the motors encoder. What I do is have the outputs from drive go to IP-A then have them jumpered across to the Enc module, seems to work fine for everything except the Spindle Align. I am wondering if it has something to do with the drives outputs as my actual encoder is sine/cosine so doesnt have an index pulse as such.

I did that too, jumpered A B I , but from spindle pulley encoder to both IP-A and ENC.  Didn't help the PID issue. Don't have an explanation why they want motor encoder. Never connected the spindle enable in plugin cause between brains and macros, it's already a puzzle. I should write something up as a heads up with brains and macros commingling.

I think what they are meaning is normally you will have 2 encoders unless the motor is direct drive as in my case. So that way I can use the encoder for both.
As said however my actual encoder is not suitable as it is sine/cosine but as my servo drive can be set to send out interpolated encoder signals rather than just passing them out it works fine.
Although the Orient isn't working. Whether that is the drives output or the IP-A that is at fault I am not sure. I suspect it may be the drive as I looked at the drive in its software and I never saw the Index pulse change, it was constantly on. That stands to reason as there is no index pulse on the encoder with it being a Sine/Cosine encoder, I however thought the drive would manufacture one, maybe it is not correct, I will have to haul out the scope one day and see.

Main thing is you have it working by other means.

Hello LM941,

did you ever get the spindle orientation running ?
i am in the same Situation now.

Thank You Thomas.

anything is possible, just try it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.
