I’m still working on Telescop direct drive project using an absolute encoder.
Currently only SSI and BiSS protocol are compatible for absolute encoder.
These Encoders are very expensive.
Other Important provider on the market is Heidenhain but based on Endat Protocol.
This protocol is very close to BiSS protocole.
These encoders are less expensive compare to Renishaw for exemple. 400-500$ compare to 1500$ for a Renishaw.
I would like to know if it’s on your roadmap to integrate other protocols like Endat ?
