Absolute encoders
« on: February 03, 2016, 08:41:22 AM »
New to Mach4.  Looking at using absolute encoders with a Machmotion system, since absolute encoders do not need to be homed, what if anything do you need to do when first starting up your Mach4 software?  Do you still need to Ref all or home?
Using Yaskawa servos, how do you tell the system where your axis 0.0 should be?  Sorry for the simple questions, but trying to learn.

It would be best to talk to MachMotion about that as Mach4 is modified to specifically work with THEIR motion controller.
