This is my first post so I hope I chose the right place to ask.
I would like to introduce the AEDM-5810-Z12 optical encoder to track a wheel attached to the stepper rotor. I see the rotor length is 15mm, while the AEDM-5810-Z12 thickness is 18.3mm. How can I incorporate the AEDM-5810-Z12 into my design and still have rotor length left to operate the attached wheel? Is it possible to buy a longer rotor or possibly use the SY20STH30-0604A back shaft? Attached are the datasheets.
Also, please point out any flaws in my approach. I’m open to changing to a different optical encoder if the two components aren’t compatible.
