Hi, I’m using a 5000 PPR X4 type encoder with an IDC5Q module and Snap-Pac-R1 controller. The problem is that I could only read negative counts in both directions when monitoring from Pac manager Digital bank. One direction counts fast and the other counts slower but both accumulating negative counts.
The same program has been successfully used on more than 30 machines but with 500 PPR encoders. This time is a 5000 PPR X4 encoder, but the IDC5Q is able to pickup up to 25K, so it shouldn’t be a problem. Did I miss anything here? Any comments will be appreciated.
