Spindle and Traverse Encoders

Indicate encoder position and read a range from 0 to 719, representing two 360 degree rotations. Values for spindle and traverse should be somewhat close to each other and read sequentially.

Indicators of Problems

  • Stop the machine and manually spin the spindle and traverse by hand. Numbers should be sequential and should not be able to go backwards.
  • Numbers should be relatively close to one another, if not, the traverse and spindle are out of sync.
  • Numbers outside the range between 0 and 719
