Need to replace a motor encoder, do I need to carry out a rotational auto-tune?

May 2nd, 2023

If replacing a motor encoder on a permanent magnet machine (i.e Endat encoder) then ropes will have to be lifted and a rotational auto-tune will be required. When replacing an incremental encoder on an induction motor a static auto-tune would in most cases be sufficient.

Please refer to job contract manual for relevant auto-tune procedure.
