    Replace the encoder without reconfiguration

    Hello everyone,

    I have a Fanuc 1-OSP/3000 motor. I would like to know if I need to reconfigure its position if I remove its encoder and replace it with another one.

    I would greatly appreciate any advice or opinions you could share. Thank you in advance for your help!

    Normally need to re-set the zero point of the encoder after replacement.

    You cannot change the position of the Fanuc red-cap internal encoder as it also has a 4-bit commutation tracks for the 3ph AC timing.
    It uses these 4 bits to create a pseudo sine wave for the commutation synchronization.
    The encoder is keyed.
