The servos on my mill have sinusoidal encoders which are not compatible with most CNC control stuff.
I am looking at various options.
One is to make a converter to convert sinusoidal to quadrature. It is a pain in the butt to do due to lack of documentation on what wire does what.
Another one is to reuse a converter board from the existing Heidenhain controller. Same issue as above. (and I do have documentation, it just does not say what is what).
I have opened up one of my servos to see the shaft. It is a 10mm shaft.
For that size, US Digital has suspiciously cheap encoders E7P:They seem like they will fit, however, I am slightly surprised at the price.
I Wanted to know if anyone has any suggestions, as I do not want to go a wrong way.i
