Hollow shaft type incremental encoders are designed to fit over motors
to help reduce movements that can result in harm. The main difference between the hollow shaft type of encoders and the solid shaft design is that installing the solid shaft model requires the use of coupling and flanges. However, the hollow shaft type incremental encoders only require a spring tether to absorb vibrations and rotational movements. The hollow shaft incremental encoders are mainly used for positioning and applications in motor-speed. Also, they can be used in light and heavy-duty applications. The encoders are mounted directly on a motor to prevent rotation through affixation of highly flexible torque arms. In addition to being easy to install, the hollow shaft type incremental encoders also help to save speed and reducing shock-induced deformations.
