Achieving Absolute Encoder Resolutions and Performance with Incremental EncodersJanuary 04, 2021 by Quantum Devices
Explore how Quantum Devices’ QR12 and LP12 incremental encoders achieve high resolutions.
There are several considerations involved in the selection of encoders used in OEM equipment. Absolute encoders deliver very high resolutions with millions of pulses per revolution (PPR), a highly desirable capability in a wide variety of OEM equipment. However, absolute encoders are more expensive to utilize as they need more data to be read and transmitted, resulting in more wires or more complex circuitry to serialize the data transmission.
New advances in incremental encoder output signal management, as well as new mechanical mounting and construction characteristics, make some incremental encoders an attractive option for OEM applications requiring high PPR. This whitepaper by Quantum Devices will explore how Quantum Devices’ QR12 and LP12 incremental encoders achieve high resolutions.
