 If you use the [[https://​shop.pv-automation.com/​et10/​9-mycnc-et10.html|ET10 controller]],​ you can utilize the dedicated encoder inputs instead of connecting the MPG wheel to the binary inputs of this controller. In this way, it is not necessary to specify two binary inputs but rather one specific encoder input. ​ If you use the [[https://​shop.pv-automation.com/​et10/​9-mycnc-et10.html|ET10 controller]],​ you can utilize the dedicated encoder inputs instead of connecting the MPG wheel to the binary inputs of this controller.

   * Next we select the length of displacements with the help of MPG.
