Gecko 320x and encoder problem
« on: January 05, 2015, 04:20:10 PM »

I got my x and z Gecko 320s working no problem. For the panel rebuild I purchased a new G320x for the Y axis.
I used the same wiring as the 320s but it seems the motor ran away. Not a big deal since I made
certain the timing belt wasn't attached. I have the US Digital E2 with differential encoder cables. So at this
point the Gecko isn't recognizing the encoder I assume. I`m using all the default settings at the moment.
I tried using the HED dip switch setting but still the motor just ran at full speed. Gecko has a known problem
with the US digital encoders. But various people have mentioned if you have line drivers the encoders should
work. Is there any difference in the wiring from a 320 to 320x. Checked out both manuals to my eye they look
the same.

This is embarrassing. The encoder cables were not completely seated.
Now its working.
