A shaft encoder or most commonly referred to as a rotary encoder can efficiently control a device's operating movement. It is incredibly reliable in determining a motor's speed or position. Encoders work by transforming motion to an electrical signal. A motion control system like a PLC
will then interpret this signal. A feedback signal will then be sent out by the encoder, giving accurate details on speed, direction, and position. With a control device, you can respond to the encoder's signal.We have rotary encoders at MRO Supply. You can choose between a hollow shaft type incremental
or shaft type absolute. Both are designed to deliver maximum performance for your designated application. Shop now.
