I have not been able to find any reference to using Absolute encoders in the forums .
looking at buying a pair of Delta A2 drives and servos for a lathe they are available with absolute encoders ?
Just waiting on a price back for them
Is there any plc programming changes to be made to use them ?
The drives repeat position to the control in incremental form. The encoders will be incremental from the control's perspective. Absolute position retrieve from Delta is not supported on any current Centroid hardware.
