Replacing an Angle Encoder
Step 1: Remove the blue metal shroud that protects the angle encoder. There are (4) 9/16″ bolts that you will need to remove.
Step 2: Inspect the encoder for anything that could cause the encoder to malfunction.
- One or both of the metal tabs/clips that hold the encoder in place could be broken.
- The set screw could be loose allowing the shaft to spring freely from the encoder.
Step 3: Remove the (2) screws on the spring clip that attach the encoder to the motor
Step 4: Remove the set screw for the encoder.
Step 5: Slide the encoder off the shaft, and replace it with a new encoder. Repeat Steps 1-4 in reverse order.
