   Encoder spacing

Question 

How is encoder spacing defined?

Answer 

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

Encoder spacing is set by the user and represents the distance between two measurements when using an encoder as trigger input.

Encoder spacing defines the displacement in millimeters per encoder count. In combination with the entered encoder spacing, the system calculates how many encoder pulses are needed before the sensor is triggered for the next measurement.

Encoder spacing can be any value greater than the encoder resolution.

If encoder spacing is not an exact multiple of the encoder resolution, the Gocator will trigger at the closest encoder count.
