Encoders Have Been Used in Space Exploration for Almost 70 Years In our March 12th post, we identified different ways by which encoders can be categorized. In that post we focused on the first category - type of movement which encoders are able to monitor. Today we will discuss the second category: sensing technology used in most encoders. Note: The descriptions and drawings in this post are... Read More »
Edible Printing Has Arrived! In our last post we focused on encoders based on the type of movement which is being measured. In this post we will see those encoders being used in real world situations. Check out the video links throughout this post! Industries highlighted are Medical, Printing, Laser Engraving and Concentrated Solar Power. Rotary encoders are indispensable in the... Read More »
Interior of a Concentrated Solar Power System Encoders are critical elements in a motion system because they provide position and/or velocity feedback to the motion controller, enabling the controller to close the positional control loop. The number of applications which require encoders is extensive and the types and sizes of encoders that serve these applications are just as... Read More »
Wire Measuring Machine from 1910-1920 In the previous blog, we offered many definitions of encoders and based on the definition chosen, the above wire measuring machine qualifies as an encoder. For now, ignore that picture and we will chat about it later in this blog. Today's post will discuss current uses of encoders which are happening all around us. Unless otherwise specified,...
