Issue Details

I want to acquire the data from the encoder and move the motor manually so I can capture the position that the motor is while I move it. Is this possible?

Solution

This is possible but you will need to make sure that the drive is disabled. Otherwise, the drive will be inputting current to the motor, making difficult to move the motor manually.

Additional Information

A different approach to this situation is using an external encoder and read from it using an acquisition device.
