Rotary Encoder to DRO
« on: December 27, 2009, 08:54:28 PM »
Ok, this is the dummy of the site wanting to know how to take a rotary encoder and use it so that as I rotate the encoder shaft, I get a Dro read out showing linear position of the table. Any help would be superior to any info I have now. Thanks

?You want to use an encoder as an MPG? ie. Use an encoder so you can manualy turn it's shaft and thus move an axis.

No. I want to mount the rotary encoder on my table and as the table moves, it will roll the encoder. I want to convert that rolling action to distance moved (DRO)

Simply wire it up to your PP, and configure it as an encoder input.
