Is it a trivial thing to mount them like we do hall's, or is this not possible?
OH...a $50 encoder...good enough!
You gotta drill a pocket into the back of the motor shaft for the encoder magnet to get glued in. Then just some structure you can afix the encoder package to sit over that magnet. Then you need to clock the encoder to be aligned properly, which requires an o-scope tinkering. Then you make sure you've got which is which for sine/cosine sorted out, send that to the sevcon's encoder input, and you're ready to begin configuring the sensor to the controller and start dyno tuning.
