Can I use the encoder without a motor connecting to it


#1

Hey smart guys,

I’m doing an underactuated system with Odrive, where I have to measure two angles with two encoders but only actuate one angle with one motor. But I’m not sure if I can get the position of the second encoder which does not have a motor connected to it. Does anyone know whether Odrive can handle this?

Yes a connected encoder will run full updates even if there is no active motor on that channel.
