Incremental rotary encoders are multi-turn sensors that use optical, mechanical, or magnetic index-counting for angular measurement. They do not contain an absolute reference. Instead, incremental rotary encoders count relative to the turn-on position. The number of successive cycles (signals) corresponds to the resolvable mechanical increments of motion.
