FB1.ENCSIGN

Description

FB1.ENCSIGN sets the sign interpretation of the raw encoder signals. A correct setting of this keyword value for absolute encoders is needed. If an absolute encoder reports an “unsigned” position value, which is different to the default interpretation of “signed” position values (FB1.ENCSIGN 1), a position jump might be detected at “half” of the encoder measuring range. Setting the keyword to FB1.ENCSIGN 0 fixes this problem.
