SICK Datasheets for Rotary Encoders

Rotary encoders convert the angular position of a shaft or axle to an analog or digital code. There are two types of rotary encoders, absolute and incremental encoders, which can be controlled by various technologies which include mechanical, optical, magnetic and fiber optic.

Product Name Notes
Absolute encoders generate information about position, angle, and rotation counts in type-specific angle steps. For this, a unique code pattern is assigned to each angle increment. The number of code...
Incremental encoders generate information about position, angle, and rotation counts. The resolution is defined in the number of lines or pulses per rotation, which the encoder transmits to the control...
