I have a Panasonic servo motor( model no.MSME 102GCGM), this motor comes with an encoder installed and a drive. I am learning motor control, so i need to do the drive myself with dSPACE system and to do that I need the encoder signal as feedback, however the encoder output signal is not ABZ phase signal, rather it uses serial transmission which the Panasonic drive recognizes but the company would not share the protocol used. To do this, the first thing, I need to know that protocol that is used for this encoder. Second, after I know the protocol, I need to decode the information so that I can use it for motor control learning. Am I right? It seems difficult. Anyone have some experience? Or should I just buy another encoder with ABZ phase output?
