In your opinion, how universal is it for the raw encoder position of a drive to be reported back to RMP as a PDO?
In other words, could I rely on this being present for most drives or is it something that only some drives really do? Of the 467 products listed in EtherCATNodeInfo.xml, only 47 of them have
PositionActual entries. Now, a bunch of those are not drives, but I didn’t really have an easy way to count only drives.
It seems likely that RMP would always want actual position transferred by PDO, but that’s only a hunch. Can you give me some guidance?
