Paths, position, angle – an encoder is the ideal solution when it comes to precise position detection in industrial automation. The same applies to measuring revolutions and rpm as well as speed and acceleration. High-resolution optical encoders and extremely rugged magnetic encoders complement one another perfectly and permit exact measurements in all kinds of applications. Rotary encoders are available as incremental and absolute encoders. Wire draw encoders and linear encoders with a measuring element are available in linear measuring technology.
