Absolute Encoder

Posital/Fraba IXARC explosion proof rotary encoder
 

Absolute encoders are feedback devices in a motion system to provide motor shaft position when the motor is powered down with a return to that exact position when the motor powered back up, unlike an incremental encoder that when powered back up returns to a home position.

Usage

It should be understood that absolute encoders may be known as:

  • Absolute encoder
  • Absolute rotary encoder
  • Capacitive absolute encoder
  • Linear absolute encoder
  • Mechanical absolute encoder
  • Multi-turn encoder - battery powered and geared
  • Optical absolute encoder
  • Parallel encoder
  • Shaft encoder

Applications

Absolute encoders are found in:

  • Cleanroom environments
  • Industrial controls
  • Opto-mechanical applications
  • Robotics
  • Wash down / Hazardous environments
