How to synchronise two encoders
« on: December 27, 2020, 12:01:30 PM »
Hi guys, just thinking about projects for next year and I would like to make a power feed (roller wheels) for a mitre saw.
The catch is that I want one set of rollers on one side of the saw and then a second set on the outfeed. Both sets to be synchronised as the timber passes from one set of rollers to the other.
Assuming the encoder was mounted on a roller-table, how can I pass the value of one encoder at the point that the timber reaches the second set of rollers?

Hope that makes sense!
