  • Motion control and Optical encoders
    offers up to 18-bit resolution in a single-turn system or 36-bit in multiturn versions. The largest diameter hollow-shaft multiturn encoder measures 2 in. in diameter, with an overall housing diameter of only 4.56 in. Its multiturn resolution ranges up to 25 bits. Optical rotary encoders are the most
  • How Does an Optical Encoder Work?
    The Optical Encoders typically consist of a rotating and a stationary member. The rotor is usually a metal, glass, or a plastic disc mounted on the encoder shaft. The disc has some kind of optical pattern, which is electronically decoded to generate position information. The rotor disc in absolute
  • Mechanical Encoders with Extended Cycle Rotation Lives Now Rival Optical Encoders at Much Lower Cost
    As the electronic products industry grows more competitive, manufacturers are seeking greater economy in the manner in which they manufacture, as well as cost effective alternatives to expensive components. For example, the decision whether to utilize mechanical or optical encoders for various
  • Optical Encoder Technical Articles
  • OMNICODER (R) Programmable Optical Encoder
    Get the inside scoop on the Omnicoder (R) programmable incremental encoder. This BEI Sensors patented technology is the easiest-to-program incremental encoder on the market. Use it to reduce inventory, synchronize multiple activities, reduce set-up times from hours to minutes and so on.
  • Optical Shaft Encoders
    Rotary and linear optical encoders are common in position and motion sensing. Here, a disc or plate containing opaque and transparent segments passes between an LED and detector to interrupt a light beam. All rotary encoders consist of a light source, light detector, code wheel, and signal
  • Optical Incremental and Absolute Rotary Encoders
    The purpose of an encoder is to act as a position feedback device as part of an integrated control system. The encoder is an electro-optomechanical device that attaches to a rotating shaft providing angular position information to a counter or controller. An optical encoder uses a code disk
  • Here Come Low-Power Encoders
    drain of most optical encoders under close scrutiny. No surprise, then, that alternatives to traditional optical encoders are getting attention. One device in this category is the capacitive position encoder. Capacitive encoders now on the market operate down to 3.6 V -- an advantage when operating
