Encoders

Incremental Rotary Optical Encoders

EncodersOverviewRotary encoders are devices that measure angular position. Incremental encoders, which output a pulse train to allow the controlling device to count up or down from the current position, are the most common type but absolute models are also available. ...

Incremental Absolute Optical Encoders

EncodersOverviewAbsolute 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...
