How many Z-channel pulses on G2/M2 drives?

NOT READY: Some are 60, some are 100, some are 124...



You cannot alter the number of Z-channel pulses on the Dynaserv G2 and M2 drives. The number of Z-channel pulses for each is listed below:

DR1xxxA = 200
DR1xxxB = 124
DR1xxxE = 150

DR5xxxA = 104
DR5xxxB = 68
DR5xxxC = 52
DR5xxxE = 78

DM-A = 100
DM-B = 60
DM1004B = 124
DM1004C = 124

The manual incorrectly states parameter #358 as the number of Z-channel pulses per rev. This is actually the number of encoder pulses or motor steps per Z-channel pulse.

For example, #358 for a DRM2-1015B will show "8192". If we then multiply this number by the total of 124 Z-channel pulse per revolution, we end up with the drive resolution of 1,015,808 encoder pulses per revolution.
