A rotary encoder also known as shaft encoder, is an electromechanical device which converts angular motion or position of axle or shaft to a digital signal. A rotary encoder is a kind of position sensor that is used in defining the angular situation of a rotating shaft. A rotary encoder also creates an electrical signal, either digital or analog which depends on the rotational movement.

Rotary encoders are frequently used to track the path of the motor shaft on permanent magnet motors that are mostly used in robots, CNC machines, and various industrial software. Incremental (quadrature) encoders are utilized on acceptance engine sort servo motors, yet supreme encoders are utilized as a part of permanent magnet brushless engines, where it is applicable.

Market Overview

A Rotary Encoder can be defined as an electromechanical switch utilized as angular position sensor whose output is usually an advanced encoding of supreme or relative position, in spite of the fact that there are some turning encoders through sinusoidal outputs. Regularly, the rotary encoder is combined with a chip and can be found in industrial applications (engine control) and different human-PC input gadgets.
