Bidirectional Interface suits quick-response drives.

EdDat 2.2 serial interface is capable of outputting absolute position values, as well as requesting or updating information stored in encoder. It offers purely digital transmission to higher-level electronics over 4 lines. Analog signal will not be disturbed by interference on way to subsequent electronics because it is already interpolated in encoder. Automatic measurement of propagation time...
