Hello lzzybe, thank you for replying I know its been a while but im finally coming back to this project. I do not have any filtering enabled. The encoder i am using is a Red Lion zfg0060c.
I left the Scaler at 1 because the manual says to get your scaler by dividing your ppr by 60(sec) 60ppr/60sec = 1. The manual seemed to say that the HSC card would do the equation based on the scaler you put in and display the rate in the tag Ctr.current.rate. When I spin the encoder the current.rate stays a zero but will jump to 1000 for a quick second if I spin it fast but than go back to zero.
