    Default SL2-100 communications protocol "industry standard"

    Hi,

    the XY2-100 protocol is more or less known and also well-documented. Now some companies come up with a new interface and protocol, the SL2-100. It only has two lines DataIn+ and DataIn- plus two Lines DataOut+ and DataOut- and supports 20 bit scanner resolution.

    Has anybody an idea how this protocol looks like and works? Any documentations out there that describes SL2-100 on data level?

    Thanks!

    I know this question is somewhat old, but may be this helps a bit. SL2-100 is a serial protocol, it no longer makes use of separate lines for X, Y, clock, and sync. This image is from the official manual:

    So the position data for X and Y (and perhaps Z) need to be transferred serial/interleaved over this line. When measuring with an oscilloscope, the signal looks like this:

    Not sure if that helps but that's what I know so far...

    Default SL2-100 standard or specifications

    Anyone know where I can find a specification for the SL2-100 interface? Is this an industry standard and if so where can I find the standard? Where can one find the "official manual"?

    Seems like it might be some proprietary protocol.
