Absolute Optical Encoders
Absolute encoders output a signal that directly relates to absolute position. For this reason, they do not require a homing or reference signals.
ORLIN Technologies offers a range of stepper motors fitted with absolute encoders from the factory.
SMAC is also currently developing absolute rotary and linear encoders. These will be available from ORLIN soon and will offer:
26 bit resolution for single turn and 32 bit resolution for multi-turn
SPI or BiSSc interface
Simultaneous ABZ, UVW, and BiSS
