Incremental Encoder

IXARC Incremental Encoder courtesy POSITAL-FRABA
 

Incremental encoders are position feedback devices that provide incremental counts. An incremental encoder provides relative position, where the feedback signal is always referenced to a start or home position.

Usage

Incremental encoders are commonly used in harsh environments, of control and measurement motion control systems, such as:

  • Moist and wet
  • Contaminants such as dirt and dust
  • Corrosive and wash-down
  • Hazardous, including explosive
  • Shock and vibration
  • Temperature, both low and high
  • High shaft load

Light duty incremental encoders may carry only a IP54 enclosure rating while Industrial duty (mentioned above) incremental encoders may be IP67 rated.
