I have problem with encoders. They count less in one direction so Z axis is going lower and lower.
At the moment I’m decided to change encoders type.
As you know I made my own chain motor mount for top beam. It let me connect any encoder directly to output shaft.
There are magnetic disc and optic Quadrature encoders that will work in maslow cnc.
Do we really need that big resolution?
1000 x 290gear ratio x 4=1160000
Optical encoder “1000” mounted as electric motor encoder will generate 1160000 pulses per one gear box rev. That’s too much
Mounted as Output shaft encoder it will generate 4000 impulses
4000 vs ~19600. Not a big difference for me.
