Encoder Problem!

Our team has a problem with encoders. We have our jaguar and other electronics plugged into the digital sidecar. Then as we plug in our encoders to the sidecar, the other parts such as the jaguar and cRio no longer work.
Any idea what the problem is? Your help is much appreciated.:slight_smile:

Sounds like a short circuit is pulling down the voltage. Can you post details on how the encoder is wired?
