Help! Configuring Encoder Scale/Stepper Scale

Hi All

I have a problem setting the encoder scale/stepper scale.

My thought is that when using a servo motor we have to enter the input in the Encoder Scale,
and when using a stepper motor we have to enter the input on the Step Motor Scale? (CMIIW)

i am using a servo motor with a 2500P/r encoder and i am using a ballscrew with a pitch of 10mm ..

for electronic I use mesa 7i76e. I have tested the ping to 10.10.10.10 and have received feedback

My question are :
1. Why can't the encoder scale on the Axis Scale Calculation tab be edited? (gray)
2. Is there any other way to enter the encoder scale / stepper scale apart from using the Axis Scale Calculation?



Thank You,Thank You, Thank You in Advance

Wouldn't you need to configure the Encoder on the bottom right of the "I/O Connector 1" page? Where it says "Unused Encoder" you would choose "Axis Encoder" and then the axis.

now the problem is i can only set the encoder for 1 axis only.
whereas I have a total of 4 servo motors. X-Y-Y2-Z

I use a panasonic ac servo motor minas A4.

can you tell me, what i did wrong or forgot?

Many, many, many thanks in advance

Is This Helping?

For step/dir interfaced servos, you only need to set the step scale
the single encoder on a 7I76e is for the spindle
