RLS Orbis encoder using SSI

Hi all,

I’m looking for a way to use the RLS Orbis with the SSI protocol as an encoder for my ODrive. Is this possible within ODrive and how would you implement the correct configuration for this encoder.

It’s supported… ODrive.Encoder.Mode | ODrive

Just have to convert your differential signals to single-ended

Hi @Wetmelon ,

So sorry to be bother, but that appears to be a dead link. Would you be able to provide an updated one? Thank you so much and apologies for the inconvenience.

sorry about that :slight_smile: ODrive Reference — ODrive Documentation 0.0 documentation

Why is the RLS not mentioned in the encoder guide? ODrive encoder guide - Google Sheets

I’m also wondering why @kgeo003 wants to use the SSI version while there is even a SPI version of the RLS. Would you still need to convert the singals even if you use the SPI version?

SSI for a lot of encoders means “single-ended, but broadcasts data instead of requiring a 2-way transaction” instead of “actual” SSI (which is RS-422).

It’s a bit confusing.
