IO-Link - Incremental encoders

  • Defined pulse sequence for the reliable detection of rotational speeds
  • For precise position determination and linear measurement
  • User-friendly communication and parameterization via IO-Link
  • High shock and vibration resistance
  • Hollow shaft encoder for direct mounting on actuators


Incremental encoders

Incremental encoders generate a precisely defined number of pulses per revolution. They are a measure of the angular or linear distance moved. The phase difference between the signals A and B, which are shifted by 90°, allows evaluation of the direction of rotation.
