    I got hold of some older European origin motors and had to end up doing some reverse engineering, the first thing and most obvious is the motor technology, DC brushed? BLDC or AC sinusoidal? stepper etc?

    If they are AC servo's then they most likely have resolvers for position and commutation, if used in robotics application then they could be using absolute encoders?
    It may need further examination by removing the rear cover etc.

    Sounds like it might be a resolver geared off the shaft, as was often done on this age of motor.
    A photo would confirm.

    Hello Guy's,
    we have similar project - for control KUKA with our servo drives - AMK Drives and Controlers!
    So I have this done with AMK servo drives. KUKA motor encoders are Resolvers but not normal resolvers!

    If you are interested and you need such kind of control please send me an e-mail
    krasimir.krustev@amk-drives.bg
    AMK Bulgaria, Application Department
