Encoder is a device that compiles and converts signals or data into signals that can be used for communication, transmission and storage. It can be used in a variety of applications, including industrial automation, medical, robotics, textiles, photography, motion control, etc.
Encoders are divided into rotary encoders and optical encoders. Stepper motor rotary encoders include incremental rotary encoders and absolute rotary encoders. Incremental rotary encoders have the following advantages: to ensure simple and easy-to-use pulse counting, without any pressure and obstacles. Precision encoders for frequency monitoring and related applications. High-efficiency encoders can be installed with direction, speed and position monitoring equipment. Compared with absolute encoders, it is more cost-effective, durable and easy to operate.
