AN ENCODER REVOLUTION: FIELD PROGRAMMABILITY - Optical and Resolver Encoders for Industrial Control Systems

Sponsored by AVG

Encoders are used in mechanical motion applications to determine the position, speed and direction. Many of industrial control systems today need to be able to get the position and speed feedback in rugged environments in order to operate. Such applications/industries include: metal stamping, can manufacturing, steel, tire, plating lines, drag lines, and more. Today, optical encoders and resolvers are more commonly used as recent technological developments allow the prices to be cost effective in industrial control systems. This paper will explore how to select the right encoder based on its type, as well as the merits and applications for a field programmable Encoder and Resolver which are entirely programmable on the device itself, without the need of a computer or software.
