What Should I Consider When Installing an Encoder Tether?

Encoder tethers are designed and engineered to allow the encoder to float with the run-out of the motor shaft. If the tether is bolted too rigidly to the motor, then run-out from the motor can damage the encoder bearings. It is critical to use the parts provided with the encoder during installation to ensure the tether is properly placed. Avoid bending the tether from the position in which it is provided from the factory.
