    Yaskawa Serial Encoder Testing

    IDENTIFICATION AND CABLINGIt is important to know exactly which model of encoder you are testing. Using the incorrect serial Yaskawa test selection will often provide poor results. The Athena softw...

    Yaskawa Serial Encoder Identification

    Yaskawa serial encoders come in several bit types and can be "Incremental" (INC), meaning no battery backup, or "Absolute" (ABS) with battery backup. Unfortunately it is hard to identify them by lo...

    Indramat/Rexroth MKD/MKE Resolver and Digital Board Test Procedures

    REQUIRED HARDWARE TI-5924 resolver test cable, TI-5040 (rev C) digital board test cable, and TI-5104 8VDC adapter module.   BACKGROUND While many motor brands have a standard alignment, there is no...

    Indramat MDD/MHD Encoder Removal

    There are several types of encoders used on the Indramat MDD/MHD series motors. The procedure below describes the older Hiedenhain and Stegmann types with larger diameter encoders. But even on the ...

    1 Vpp Line Levels and Scanning Gap Adjustment on Inductive Encoders

    Many German serial encoders (mainly SICK Stegmann Hiperface and Heidenhain EnDat) use incremental sine wave signals in addition to the serial data lines. It is important to check that these signals...

    SICK Stegmann Hiperface Analog Offset Error

    SICK Stegmann Hiperface encoders produce a serial count for positioning that can be read in the serial Position Count section of the Data Display. The A and B channels are 1Vp-p cosine and sine wav...

    Kollmorgen AKM motors with SFD feedback

    Kollmorgen's SFD feedback is basically a resolver which is fed into a PCB (see below) which converts the signals into a proprietary absolute serial data stream. We do not have support for the 4-wir...

    Festo EMMS Support

    Festo motors have become more popular in recent years. They typically come with Heidenhain ECI1118 or EQI1130 serial EnDat 2.2 encoders without any incremental lines. Do to the lack of incremental ...

    Rexroth KSM Integrated Drive Motors (KSD)

    The Rexroth KSM series of motors come with drive components built onto the top of the motor, as shown below. We currently do not offer support testing through the drive directly, however, the drive...

    What is the largest motor that the TI-3000JX can run?

    In general, even the largest permanent magnet brushless motors will run on our system, it just depends how fast they will run. This is all determined by voltages; both the backdrive voltage output ...
