High performance position measurement

High performance position measurement Heidenhain has updated its EnDat encoder interface. The new EnDat 2.2 bidirectional digital interface reduces cost and reduces overall size. The advancement of the EnDat interface to a fast, purely serial, and fully digital interface for high-response drives yields significant savings in connection technology for the entire system, smaller and more cost-effective subsequent electronics, and a reduction of required installation space in the machine. Also, since the analogue scanning signals are digitised and subdivided directly at the place of measurement, characteristics of servo motors such as positioning accuracy and speed stability can be further improved. It is easy to see, then, why leading companies worldwide are either implementing or planning to implement the EnDat 2.2 interface.
