Versatile, compact and flexible – Incremental encoders
Incremental encoders generate signal periods or signal sequences of pulses whose frequency is proportional to the rotational speed. The number of pulses per revolution determines the resolution. Counting the pulses makes it possible to record positions and rotation counts as well. The stainless steel types are particularly suitable for use under challenging ambient conditions. SICK also offers incremental encoders with a functionally safe design that support safety functions according to IEC 61800-5-2.
