Using linear glass encoder
« on: April 04, 2008, 02:16:34 PM »
        I'm buying an linear glass encoder to use with X and Y axis (5um , A and B TTL signals). Someone knows if Mach3 can read the linear encoder outputs with I use an feedrate value of 500 units/min (mm/min)?

         I'm afraid of that using feedrate values such high like 700mm/min, the linear glass encoder output frequency (A and B) too high, that parallel port can't read these signals.

Mach could read my 5um scales at 2500mm/min so your 700mm/min wont cause a problem at all.
