Is it possible to read encoder count on Altivar 71 drive.

On ATV71 drive the only parameter which allows reading the encoder count is the PUC parameters.
PUC counts each pulse from encoder. 
As long as an encoder card and encoder feedback is connected on the drive then the PUC counter counts the number of pulse from the encoder feedback in open loop or in close loop.

PUC parameter description: 
- The PUC value is the Pulse counter. This value count the number of pulse sends by the encoder board.
- PUC (logic address 5611) is initialized to the value 0 when the drive is powered on. So if the drive is power OFF the PUC value is reinitialized to 0.
