How it works
Encoders: digital or analog


Digital encoders

The DIGITAL ENCODERS allow for resolutions up to 4x their nominal resolution: ex 180LPI ( lines per inch ) can be decoded as 720LPI, because the encoder generates 4 transitions per cycle using both photocells ( also called channels A and B ). One can interpolate in between transitions, provided the relative movement speed is kept and known to be constant.

Analog encoders

ANALOG ENCODERS allow for higher resolutions as the analog output of both channels defines any Intermediate position.
