   Gocator encoder Z signal needed for encoder triggered operation

Question 

Is the Gocator encoder Z signal needed for encoder triggered operation?

Answer 

Sensor Model All
Firmware Version 3.x, 4.x
SDK Version 3.x, 4.x

The Z (index) signal is triggered once every revolution of the encoder. This signal is not needed for normal encoder operation. The signal state is encoded in the result message of the Gocator protocol sent out over Ethernet.
