Incremental and absolute encoders are available, as single-turn and multi-turn encoders. Both solutions guarantee precise determination of speed, position, direction and angle of rotation, a robust design and high resolution. They can be integrated into various control systems and are a true all-rounder.
Wide range of product types
Easy integration in control systems
Not one, but two reliable all-rounders
Incremental encoders: Incremental encoders generate pulses with a frequency proportional to the rotational speed. They are used for rotational speed control, position control, as a rotation indicator or as a pulse generator for servo motors in machine tools, robots or measurement devices. Output signals are two digital or analog signals; A-Phase and B-Phase. These are used to detect the direction of rotation. Z-Phase is used as reference and for servo-motor application. U, V and W signals are available.
Absolute encoders: Absolute encoders convert the absolute value into rotation angles. They are used for the position control of servo motors in machine tools or robots. Absolute encoders are available as single-turn or multi-turn encoders.
