How Rotary Encoder Works
Overview A rotary encoder is a type of position sensor which is used for determining the angular position of a rotating shaft. It generates an
The difference between magnetic encoder and photoelectric encoder
Recently, encoders have become more and more widely used in various industries, and there have also been some problems with the choice of encoders. Today,
Selection criteria for absolute encoders and incremental encoders
Absolute encoders are more complex than incremental types and therefore are usually more expensive. Although the price difference is shrinking, incremental encoders are usually more
How to apply ES38 NPN output rotary encoder to MCU

What is a Load Cell? | How does it work?
Introduction A load cell is a sensor that detects force such as tension, compression, pressure, or torque. There are 3 types of load cells, hydraulic,
What is a Load Cell Amplifier and how Does it Work?
A load cell amplifier is a device that can increase the strength of signals coming from a load cell. Sometimes, the signals produced by the load cell can be feeble and low strength signals may not work with certain components of the measuring system like a data logger for load cells or load meter. The load cell amplifier resolves this issue by taking the signal and then amplifying it, resulting in a higher strength output signal. Load cell amplifiers can work as a standalone device or it is present in most signal-conditioning modules. We have model JY-S60, JY-S85 and other types of amplifiers for selection. The signals produced by a load cell will be mostly in
Why do we need a junction box for parallel weighing of multiple load cells?
Some users mentioned: Three load cells are used in parallel. In the past, three sensor wires were used in parallel. Now the sensor bought by
