The Truth about EnDat
EnDat 2.2 is well known as a digital, bidirectional interface for encoders. It is capable of both transmitting position values from encoders as well as updating information stored in the encoder. However, over the years, EnDat has evolved to new heights and there are features today that may be surprising to some.
Popular LIF 400 Linear Encoder Family Enhanced
HEIDENHAIN’s LIF 400 family of encoders has been redesigned with several improvements. The updates to this exposed linear kit style encoder originated from listening to customer requests over the years, and now comes with much improved contamination resistance, among other enhancements.
