Encoders for Industrial Motion Control Applications
Reliability, speed and endurance are common and key factors for an efficient operation of systems and robots among the broad field of the Factory Automation. These features play a central role also in the electro-mechanical components of the machines applied in the motion control technology.
To achieve this we source a wide range of extensive models of encoders with a high level of technical parameters, that satisfy the needs of this macro-area of application in terms of electronics – with several interfaces and output frequencies available – and mechanics – with a large number of flanges and diameters options – in order to offer a wide spectrum of standard products.
Encoders are used to translate rotary or linear motion into a digital signal. Usually this is for the purpose of monitoring or controlling motion parameters such as speed, rate, direction, distance or position. When applying encoders, selecting the optimum model and specifying the appropriate configuration are critical for success. Proper encoder selection begins by understanding the role of the encoder in the motion control system.
