What does the encoder index pulse (Z) do?
The Z (index) signal is triggered once every revolution of the encoder. This signal is typically used for synchronization and aligning data in rotational applications. It is required for the rotational surface generation.
When the Z signal is connected, Gocator will capture the encoder tick values at which the Z index occurred.
The encoder value at the last encoder index (last Z pulse) can be retrieved in the SDK - it is available under GoStamp element as encoderAtZ ("Encoder value latched at z-index mark").
This feature facilitates precise control and measurement in rotational scenarios, enhancing the overall functionality and accuracy of the system.
