I just found out my encoders have a 5 week lead time and cost $255 a pop. I think I might try to figure out something cheaper/faster. Any suggestions on encoders with similar features?

How about just using the resolvers you already have. The Kflop WILL run resolvers (;-)

Not a bad idea would that limit my capabilities at all?

Pulled the bandit just now after I labeled everything.

I hooked up the signal wires to the KAnalog JP11. Z 0 & 1st ground Y 1 & 2nd ground X 2 & 3rd ground.

Ok so I finally got the encoders in back to the project

We just picked up an old bandit control for just under $200 that wasn't setup for a tool changer so now I can see what wires are needed for the axis an what r for the tool changer and get some progress happening.

Hey back again.... Took a extended break on the project because work got really busy. We managed to buy a VF2 in the mean time. Now I have some more free time and I want to pick up the project again. I just installed one of the encoders and it is working correctly. I have my signal wires on the board as well but I'm confused as to what else I need to get closer to the finish line. I have X Y and Z signal wires all coming out of a conduit along with a XE wire and I don't understand what it's for.
