Devices and instruments for sensing and measurement of angular motion, speed, and position; includes encoders, resolvers, synchros and similar devices.
Rotary Position Sensing Categories

Absolute Rotary Encoders (296 suppliers)

Absolute rotary encoders use optical, mechanical, or magnetic indexing for angular measurement. They do not lose their position after power-down, but instead provide absolute position upon power-up without requiring a home cycle or any shaft rotation.

Incremental Rotary Encoders (381 suppliers)

Incremental rotary encoders are multi-turn sensors that use optical, mechanical, or magnetic index-counting for angular measurement. They contain no absolute reference, but instead count relative to the turn-on position.

Optical Encoder Disks and Strips (21 suppliers)

Optical encoder disks and strips are components of rotary and linear encoders, respectively. They are usually made of metal, plastic, glass, or paper. Optical encoder disks and strips have evenly-spaced holes or markings around their perimeter or length.

Rotary Position Sensors (211 suppliers)

Rotary position sensors include potentiometers, resolvers and a variety of magnetic and capacitive technologies. Sensors are designed for angular displacement less than one turn or for multiturn displacement.
