Choosing the right rotary encoder
The incremental rotary encoder measures an angular displacement with respect 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. Incremental rotary encoders are designed using different technologies, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. The most common technologies used...
