Flexaxis 4/8 Encoder Setup

Flexaxis 4/8 Encoder Setup

When connecting Encoders or using the analogue outputs on the P879 and P874 Felxaxis modules with the MC464 or MC664(X), the Flexaxis Module must have 24V connected to the IO connector on the Module. The 24V supplies internal DC/DC converters for the 5V encoder circuits and the +/-10V analogue outputs.
