Linear position sensors | Choosing the right position sensor
Optical position sensors are used to determine the position and angular or linear displacement of a part. Incremental sensors: they work in relation to a reference position. After a power failure, the data processing system must wait for the encoder to send the information corresponding to the reference position in order to correctly exploit the angular displacement information. Absolute sensors: they work as soon as the power is turned on. Absolute...
