Incremental Encoders

Incremental encoders produce sinusoidal or square wave outputs, which give an incremental number of pulses per revolution of the shaft. The resolution is defined as Pulse Per Revolution (PPR). The signals start at the power up and the shaft position is not retained when encoder is switched-off, so they can be used to control rotation speed and direction, but can't provide absolute position.

A-B-0 (90° phase shifted tracks and zero) and /A-/B-/0 complement outputs are used to detect rotation direction, increase resolution and avoid disturbances. The 0 index is used as reference marker for the "home" position. Datalogic incremental encoders offer a Smart Push-Pull & Line Driver output which is suitable for both configurations.

If you are searching for Datasensor single turn absolute encoder technical information (data-sheets) please use the datasheets or product selection guide page links.

Absolute Encoders

Absolute encoders generate a multi-bit digital data information, providing the actual angular position of the shaft. Single-turn absolute encoders repeat the code for every shaft revolution. Multi-turn absolute encoders increase the code at each shaft revolution. Shaft position is retained when the absolute encoder is switched-off, so it can provide the absolute position, as well as rotation speed or direction.

Absolute encoders have a different bit mask for each angular position, resolution is defined as Code Per Revolution (CPR) and also expressed in bits. The simple example shows a 4 bit mask, that's 16 CPR. Datalogic absolute encoders are available either with SSI serial synchronous interface, or Fieldbus interfaces as CANopen, Devicenet, EtherCAT, Profibus, or Profinet.

Linear Measurement Accessories

The draw wire accessory is used with the encoder for length measurement and position control applications. The wire head is fixed to an object, the movement of which rotates the encoder shaft and is thus possible to make measurements of displacement, length, or position up to 5 m of range.

Metric wheels are used with encoders mainly for length measuring applications and the accuracy is given by the ratio between the wheel circumference and encoder's resolution.

Leuze Sensors

The Extremely Compact Forked Sensors can be mounted without considerable additional effort and are then able to also reliably detect multi-layer paper and plastic sheets in a measurement range from 20 g/m2 paper to 800 g/m2 cardboard. A simple alternative for post-press processing. The "singlesheet" output signals that an object is within the detection range. This output may be used to check for presence.

Accu-Coder Encoders

Unlike Many C-Face Kit Type encoders, the Model 770 contains precision bearings and an internal flex mount, virtually eliminating encoder failures and inaccuracies induced by motor shaft runout or axial endplay. The advanced Opto-ASIC design provides the advanced noise immunity necessary for many industrial applications. This encoder is ideal for applications using induction motors and flux vector control. The Model 770 provides speed and
