Anilam A10 Encoder Pinout Wiring similar to Anilam SENC 125?

I’m having trouble finding the pin-out for an Anilam A10 encoder.  I’m researching retrofitting  my SuperMax mill that is controlled by an Anilam Crusader M controller with LinuxCNC.  Apparently, there are two versions of the A10 encoder, I have the one with a Red (and silver) sticker vs. a Black and Silver Encoder.  The Anilam A10 ‘may’ be similar to the Anilam SENC 125, however the connector is different as seen below.

NEXT ACTIONS:  I posted my issue to the EMC Users Group and I received the response below from Roger.  Next Action is to pull apart the connector and trace the wires and verify against the three pieces of data below.

I’m guessing it’s the same as my Crusader II:

From the EMC Users Group, the pin-out listed is close and matches the SENC 125 (manual shown lower).

Pat;
I have the a SENC 125 T/E linear encoder supplied with a Anilam DRO.
My wire colors are all different but the 5th wire is the R channel.
I think they are sending position reference but haven't checked it out yet.
It is on pin 8 of the 9 pin D connector.
 
Maybe this will help
    Don

ANILAM SENC 125 Pinout

It appears the A10 is similar to the SENC 125 from Anilam.  T
