New Heavy Duty Hollow Bore Absolute Encoder

Encoder Products Company has released a new heavy duty hollow bore absolute encoder, designed for harsh factory and plant floor environments.  Sarah Walter, an electrical engineer and Sales Engineer for Encoder Products Company, explains that “In any type of machinery that has a time-consuming positioning routine – an example would be a satellite dish – an absolute encoder is ideal.”  She goes on to explain that with an absolute encoder, the controller has precise motion feedback about the position of the equipment.  There is no need to re-home during every start-up, which consumes valuable uptime.  With absolute positioning, the controller knows exactly where the machine is at all times.
