How SSI Encoders Work

ssi
When operating brushless DC motors, knowing in real-time, and with precision, the position of the rotor is a prequisite to best performance in sinusoidal commutation. While numerous sensor techniques exist and are supported by Roboteq, Synchronous Serial Interface (SSI) is by far the best at is provides an absolute position with great resolution at very fast update rates. Synchronous Serial Interf...
