The encoder has to be correctly configured for the positioning of a drive. This FAQ provides different options of the encoder connection to the “positioning axis” technology object.

There are three options for reading of the encoder values into the “positioning axis” technology object:

  • encoder connection to the drive
  • encoder connection to a technology module
  • use of an encoder with PROFIBUS or PROFINET interface
