   Encoder count is only increasing

Question 

Why does the encoder count only increase?

Answer 

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

Ensure the correct network controller, i.e., the Master, is selected. Use Standalone for direct input using the I/O cordset. In order to detect the encoder direction, all 4 quadrature signals (A+,A-,B+,B-) have to be present. The voltage levels must be RS-485 compliant.
