Question

What timing is pulse signal of phase Z output?

Answer

Phase Z outputs signal only once per a rotation.

Phase Z signal rises before phase A rises and falls after phase A falls.

We recommend using to make phase A and phase Z serial, to take timing with rising or falling of phase A to improve accuracy.
