Got a few Fanuc motors recently. I took one of the pulsecoders off so I can connect to it. I don't have the right connector so I need to remove the connector and manually wire in. To my surprise there are actually holes on the PCB for soldering headers or wires into. They're even labeled:
0V, 5V, T0, CS, D0, D8, Pz... See picture. It seems to me that A/B would be incremental encoder style A/B, and that C1-C8 would be 8-bit Absolute Encoder?
Not Sure, what I want to make sure is that 5V and 0V are indeed +5v/Gnd. In that case I can apply a regulated 5V to it and go from there. Incremental encoding is all I really need.
