Well, it got done Monday night. Late, as usual.

I was going to experiment with the encoder cable for a few minutes. Put the signal on my scope - A and B - and watch what happens to the signal as the speed increases. When there is a problem, add some aluminum foil around the cable and use an alligator clip to tie it to 0V on the 24V dc/dc.
Didn't get to that part as yet.

I think the pinout for the encoder built into the motor is on the EVTV web site - maybe they have the part number for the connector as well!
Getting a connector to fit this encoder will be a bit more of a challenge than I thought.. more on that tomorrow.
