Check Active Shaft Encoder


Every now and then, a paper goes and stops the shaft encoder 2 from turning and products pass unprinted.

How can I avoid that ?


This is implemented from 3.13 P47 on.

Activate the “Check Active Shaft Encoder” function by opening the file d:/editorgt/user/system/arguments.txt.

Then add –CheckActEnc 2 to the controller line. If any active encoder stops sending pulses for 2 seconds, the controller will set the stop signal (which you have to connect to the transport to actually stop the transport)

When 1 active shaft encoder stalls. That is, the others are turning, one is not turning.
