Rotary Encoders

What are rotary encoders? A rotary encoder is a type of sensor used to detect the angular position or movement of a rotating shaft The goal of the sensor is to convert the rotational motion of the shaft into analog or digital signals which are then transmitted to the central PLC system This information is then processed through the PLC's algorithm to come up with a suitable response

Mixed signal ASICs are changing the face of industrial

Many industrial control systems use linear and rotary encoders A linear encoder is a sensor transducer or readhead paired with a scale that encodes position The sensor reads the scale in order to convert the encoded position into an analogue or digital signal which can then be decoded into position by a digital readout (DRO) or motion
