When the rotary shaft of the incremental encoder rotates, there is a corresponding pulse output. The determination of the rotation direction and the increase or decrease of the number of pulses are realized by the direction circuit and counter at the rear. The starting point of counting can be set arbitrarily, which can realize unlimited accumulation and measurement of multiple circles. It is also possible to use the Z signal for each pulse transmitted as a reference mechanical zero position. One rotation of the encoder shaft will output a fixed pulse, and the number of pulses is determined by the number of encoder grating lines.
CALT SENSOR can provide solid shaft, hole type encoder and split type encoder module, the resolution supports 10~10000 pulses, various circuits are optional, such as NPN, PNP, push-pull and line driver. Our biggest advantage is that we can provide non-standard customization. If you are interested, please contact us directly.
