(Encoders and Resolvers)
From this Article:
The key to the successful operation of an optical encoder is the optics system, which consists of a light source, a resolution disk, and a sensor. During the operation of the encoder, the resolution... (View Full Article)

From this Article:
Accuracy is defined as how close an actual pulse is to the theoretical perfect position. Many applications require encoders with a high degree of accuracy to function well. With poor accuracy,... (View Full Article)

From this Article:
Encoders provide velocity, acceleration, direction, and position feedback to motion systems. Two basic types of feedback are absolute and incremental. Absolute encoders report unique position... (View Full Article)

From this Article:
Encoders are often times called to duty in an environment that is not conducive to a long life. For protection against corrosion of the housing, shafts, connectors, etc., encoder housings should be... (View Full Article)

From this Article:
Gray Code is a form of binary that uses a different method of incrementing from one number to the next. With Gray Code, only one bit changes state from one position to another. This feature allows a... (View Full Article)

From this Article:
Modular, or "Kit", encoders are a specialized category of rotary encoders. The difference between a modular encoder and a standard encoder is that the modular encoder does not incorporate internal... (View Full Article)

From this Article:
When the electrical signals leave the encoder, they are "clean" in the sense of being noise free. However, by the time these signals reach their intended destination they can be degraded by radiated... (View Full Article)

From this Article:
Electrical noise generated by AC power, electric motors, fluorescent lighting, relays, and many other sources can cause a plethora of problems in electrical systems. For the encoder in your system... (View Full Article)

From this Article:
An encoder is an electro-mechanical transducer that converts mechanical rotary motion into digital signals for the control of machinery. The encoder produces a square wave signal as the shaft rotates.... (View Full Article)

From this Article:
The mechanical life of an encoder is mainly determined by the life of the unit's bearings. Several factors affect bearing life, including shaft loading, heat, ingress and rotational speed. Shaft... (View Full Article)
