Easy To Use Encoder Range Offers A Range of Positioning Possibilities
Essentially an electro-mechanical device, an encoder is able to provide motion control system users with information concerning position, velocity and direction. There are two types of encoders; the selection is normally determined by whether there is a need to retain position in the event of a power failure. Incremental and Absolute encoders are the most common … Continue reading Easy To Use Encoder Range Offers A Range of Positioning Possibilities
