Linear encoder reading


I’m trying to read the position of a linear actuator. The actuator is controlled threw a controller which receives an analog position signal as a command. I know my controller feed-backs a 0-5V digital encoder A /A, B /B and X /X signals but I have no idea how to use them and google did not help much.

Here is the data sheet of the controller (-S version) ; the data sheet of the actuator is attached to this post.

The pins I intend to use are J5 25-10 to J5 27-12 of the controller.

Do anyone have an idea of how to read such signals ?

Thanks !
