Linear encoders – absolute or incremental? Incremental encoders are simple, inexpensive, and easy to implement, but they require that the machine be homed or moved to a reference position. Absolute encoders don’t require homing, but they’re usually more expensive, and … Continue reading
When it comes to magnetic incremental linear encoders, sometimes the configurable performance parameters can be a tad obscure. One of the most puzzling is the feature called “Minimum Edge Separation”. Just for review, a magnetic incremental linear encoder system consists of a … Continue reading
