   Encoder resolution definition

Question 

How is encoder resolution defined?

Answer 

Sensor Model All
Firmware Version 3.x, 4.x
SDK Version n/a

The encoder resolution is defined in mm/tick.

This value converts encoder counts to a displacement in mm.

The Gocator detects every single rising edge of encoder quadrature pulse (A+ / A- / B+ / B-) thus one quadrature pulse is counted as 4 ticks.

Keep this in mind when calculating the encoder resolution manually.
