Can another external encoder be connected if second encoder interface is already in use?

EDIT by @CodeShepherd : Moved to own topic from this thread.

Hello Uwe,

Other question related to this topic. If I use a third party motor and have to use the XG21 ( Second encoder interface) for this motor , but I also need a encoderinterface for an external measure-system.  What will then be the solution?

Regards Johs heijmink.

Re: Can another external encoder be connected if second encoder interface is already in use?

We will have a new hardware option for single axis drives available scheduled for 2023 which will incorporate 2x EC option, means there will be 3 encoder interfaces present:

- XG20 for AcuroLink and ctrlX SENSE encoders
- first XG21 for multi encoder interface 1 
- second XG21 for multi encoder interface 2

For detailed schedule and availablilty get in touch with your sales office responsible for you.

 

Mind that in a lot of application with quite rigid transmisssion elements (like gear box and coupling) one can use the load side encoder as a single encoder, which is functionally parameterized as motor encoder only.
