Vix- Option 1 (MPM) Encoder Hardware Setup

This FAQ allows the user to setup Option 1 Encoder motors with software changes. Option 1 Encoder motors can also be setup through software changes. Please see "ViX - (MPM) Encoder Option 1 Software Setup."
The following is a table for the MaxPlus (MPM) Encoder Option 1 Termination to ViX Connections:

*The Hall signals on the MPM motors are diffential, therefore, you do not need to connect the negative signals of each hall state to the single-ended ViX Hall signals.
**The shield connections of the feedback cable should be connected to the ViX X2 header's metal housing (if possible).
*** Option 1 encoder cable wire colors can vary, however, the wire function should be consistent among all cables. If your cable wire marker (labels) are no longer present or readable, please contact Parker.
