Encoders with the purely serial EnDat interface predominantly use 8-pin M12 and 9-pin M23 connecting elements.
This widespread connector technology offers the following benefits:
- Cost-effective connection technology
- Smaller connector dimensions and thinner connecting cables
Through its lower number of wires, EnDat 3 offers further options for miniaturizing the connection technology and adapting it to the application requirements.
High transmission frequencies over long cable lengths place rigorous technological demands on the cable. Specifically designed for this purpose, HEIDENHAIN cables are qualified to handle this type of application. We therefore recommend using HEIDENHAIN cables.
