Question

Can the origin (phase "Z") be positioned with only the Rotary Encoder (without seeing ON/OFF of the output)?

Answer

1. In the E6B2-C and E6C2-CWZ[][], positioning the origin is almost possible by setting phase "Z" origin to cut face "D". (within ±20°)

2. In the E6C3-CWZ[][]H, positioning the origin is almost possible by making cut face "D" of the shaft and the direction of drawing out of the cable as the following figure. (within ±15°)

3. Please confirm ON point of phase "Z" output on the controller side and adjust the origin so cut face "D" and phase "Z" origin of other models are not suitable.
