What Can Cause a Following Error?

Following errors are common cause

Repair Zone Drive Technician

Repair Zone technicians get many people calling about ‘following errors’ and assume it is a problem with their drive and asking what causes them to occur.  Most of the time it is due to 2 things:

  1. the feedback device and the positioning information it receives
  2. or the cable transmitting the information

They are mainly caused by the controller, not the drive, and the information being fed to them by their feedback device or the cable.
